A four-year-old boy nearly drowned in the pool of a busy North Fort Myers apartment complex recently. The boy was underwater for nearly five minutes before a girl noticed him, and her father jumped in to rescue him.
The episode was caught on surveillance video. Miraculously, the boy is fine.
As WGCU’s Jenny Tavery reports, experts say it’s not unusual for a drowning person to go unnoticed because people have a misconception of what drowning really looks like.
