Doctors fought for almost a week for the life of the girl who was drowning in the backyard swimming pool. On Sunday, the child died in a hospital in Poznań.
The incident took place on July 4 in the afternoon in Osiniec. The child was cared for by an adult. – Nine-year-old took advantage of the babysitter’s moment of inattention and stepped into the pool. The pool was covered with a tarp so the child had to move it partially out of the way. When the caretaker realized that the child was missing, it was immediately taken out of the water – reported Anna Osińska from the police in Gniezno.
At that time, a policewoman on duty passed by, heard a cry for help and immediately went to the rescue. She gave the child first aid and then called the emergency medical team.
The girl is dead
The girl in serious condition was taken to hospital: first to Gniezno, then to an institution in Poznań. Urszula Łaszyńska, a spokeswoman for the Specialist Mother and Child Healthcare Team in Poznań, said – in an interview with Nadia Jóźwiak, a TVN24 reporter – that the child died on Sunday afternoon.
