WATCH: Brothers Feared Dead after Drowning in Pool, Brought Back to Life by Other Resort Guests

A family nearly lost two of its children to a drowning accident at a resort in Cebu; thankfully, other guests in the resort knew how to apply CPR and were able to bring the children back to life!

In a now viral post on Facebook, netizen Dee Dee Yhani shares several videos of the double rescue which, thankfully, ended well and the two kids could be seen breathing at the end of the clip.

According to a Baby Uy Ardines, the one of the brothers fell into the pool after getting hit by another child at Alta Cebu Village Resort and Convention Center in Cordova, Cebu in central Philippines.

Seeing that his brother was having trouble swimming and was already drowning, the other brother jumped in and tried to help him but they both ended up getting drowned.

It took a while before the two were discovered as there was no lifeguard at the pool and the adults seem to be at tables not near the pool area.

Everyone thought the two were already dead but with the resort having no nurse or lifeguard, the family helplessly screamed for help. Thankfully, Yhani’s friends Harvski Harvs and Wendy Padillo-Mirambel were trained rescuers.

The two rushed to the scene and were able to save the children. It was a good thing they were there or the siblings would have died.

The incident sparked debates on social media whether the resort or the parents were to be blamed for the children’s drowning.

Some netizens urged the parents to sue the resort for not having a lifeguard but many commented that parents should always keep an eye on their children, whether the resort has a lifeguard or not – and most especially if the children do not know how to swim.

Other netizens even blamed Yhani’s group for not taking care of the kids but she would later point out that the children were from another group and that her friends only rushed there to help because they knew how to do CPR.
