GAMBRILLS, Md. (WMAR) - A lifeguard rescued a young boy at an Anne Arundel County pool Saturday.
The boy's body was found laying at the deep end of the Waugh Chapel Swim Club in Gambrills. The lifeguard saw him, pulled him from the water, and began CPR. A defibrillator was also used during the rescue.
The boy was breathing and conscious when he was airlifted to Johns Hopkins Hospital.
According to the Connor Cares Foundation , the defibrillator used during Saturday's rescue was the first one it ever donated. The foundation was created in 2006 after 5-year-old Conner Freed drowned underneath an empty lifeguard chair at a country club pool.
Since then, the group has donated defibrillators throughout Anne Arundel, Prince George's and Montgomery Counties.
