LIFESAVER: Water emergencies require CPR with rescue breaths

TUCSON - Firefighters say, in a water emergency, CPR must include rescue breaths.

Tracy Koslowski, with Drexel Heights Fire District, demonstrated the technique for Kristi's Kids.

You should follow these steps:

*Pull the child from the water and place them on a hard surface.

*Have somone else calls 911.

*Lift the child's chin, to open their airway, and start with 2-rescue breaths.

*Do 30-chest compressions, in the center of the chest.

*Repeat the breaths/chest compressions until help arrives.

To see the demonstration, watch the video report.
