2-Year-Old Nearly Drowns in Papillion

By Ashlee Pitzl. CREATED Aug 7, 2013

 Papillion, NE - A 2-year-old girl nearly drowned Wednesday night in a pool at her home.  It happened some time after 6:30 p.m. at 1108 Patricia Drive.

Papillion Fire Captain Brian O'Shea tells KMTV Action 3 News that someone pulled the child from the pool, and the toddler didn't have a pulse. Neighbors performed CPR until medics arrived.  They continued CPR in the ambulance and revived the girl.  She was first taken to Midland Hospital, then Children's Hospital in Omaha.

Captain O'Shea says he doesn't know how long the girl was in the pool or where her parents were at the time.
