A young child who was pulled from a pool in Surrey received CPR. The incident occurred less than 24 hours after a toddler tragically drowned in the same city.

The age of the child has not been confirmed, but reports suggest that the victim is around 2 years old. The owner of the home stated that the young girl slipped under the pool cover but bystanders were able to pull her out and performed CPR. The child and her parents are said to be visitors from Calgary.
