A GIRL who almost drowned on Sunday afternoon in Marina Bay Sands' infinity pool was saved, no thanks to a lifeguard who couldn't perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Fortunately, a guest on the scene stepped up to the occasion, performed CPR and saved her life.
The incident was reported by citizen journalism portal STOMPer Eric, who also posted photos of the scene online.
The drowning girl, who wore a pink bathing suit and looked to be no more than ten years of age, was successfully pulled out from the pool.
But 'the lifeguard on duty didn't seem to be able to perform CPR', wrote Eric, shocking by-standers.
Marina Bay Sands has not yet replied to a straitstimes.com email on the incident.
