Officers Revive Boy After Pool Fall

5-26-05 - Two Ardmore police officers are being hailed as heroes after helping revive a 22-month-old toddler Wednesday night.

Keith Ingle and Lonn Hayes responded to the call on "A" St Southeast, where a pool party was finishing up. The young boy had climbed into the aboveground pool while his mother took older children inside.

The officers arrived to find a family huddled around the soaked child in their living room. A former firefighter, officer Ingle used CPR to breathe for the boy until EMS could get there.

Experts say to never take your eyes off kids when they’re around water. In as few as 10 seconds, a child can be overcome in the water.
