Video Shows Rescue of Boy Trapped Underwater For 9 Minutes


Police have released surveillance video that shows how a 12-year-old boy became stuck underwater for more than nine minutes at a resort in South Carolina. In the video, two boys can be seen playing near a suction pipe of the hotel's lazy river. Police say the boys were able to remove the safety grate from the pipe and the 12-year-old dove down to explore the pipe. The boy got his leg stuck and grasped the top of the grate to pull himself out. One woman jumps in to help while a paramedic blew air into the boy's mouth while he was underwater. EMTs were eventually able to free him and get him out of the water. The boy was taken to the hospital and is okay.
