She then points to him and calls on the help of a woman, who police say is her godmother. After screaming out for help, the godmother rushes to the pool, leaps in fully-clothed and brings the 2-year-old to the surface.
The godmother then hands the 2-year-old off to a different woman, who police said is a nurse. She and another nurse were able to revive the child after performing CPR. The women, whose names have not been revealed to the public, were at the hotel for a medical convention.
“Thankfully, two amazing off-duty nurses were at the hotel and took immediate action,” police said in the statement.
“The nurses performed CPR on the child, successfully reviving him after many cycles,” police said, adding that the child was transported to a local hospital and was later released.
“The four heroic individuals who saved the child’s life have been nominated to receive the department’s highest civilian honor; the Livonia Police Department Exceptional Service Award,” police said of the 9-year-old, her godmother and the two off-duty nurses.
