On Monday morning, the State Unit for Civil Protection and Firefighters Jalisco (UEPCBJ) gave recognition for the heroic action of Ernesto Alonso Muñoz Vázquez, a sixth grader, after saving the life of his three-year-old cousin using CPR after she fell into a pool. The novelty is that the child did not have training in first aid, he practiced what he had seen on a television show.
On June 9, a family reunion was held in Puerto Vallarta, when the youngest, named Abril, fell into a pool. “After several minutes, the minor’s family realized that Abril was not among the other children, they began to look for her and she was located in the pool, already unconscious,” the agency said in a statement.
After removing her from the pool, the attendees tried to revive her, but without success. That was when Ernesto approached and began with CPR, with which he managed to revive the young girl. “Today, April is in excellent health.”
Ernesto explained to the authorities that he did not have any first aid course, but learned the maneuver thanks to the television programs.
The recognition was given at the José Baumgartner Joya Elementary School where Ernesto attends school in Puerto Vallarta.
