A five-year-old girl was resuscitated by Adventure World life guards after nearly drowning when she lost consciousness in a pool.
A witness said the child was found by unresponsive and facedown in Adventure World’s main pool on Saturday.
Adventure World life guards began performing CPR on the little girl after she was pulled from the water by two guests.
She regained consciousness and was breathing by the time paramedics, who were called to the amusement park at 12.15pm, arrived at the scene.
The girl was rushed to Fiona Stanley Hospital in a critical condition.
A woman who pulled the girl from the water told 7NEWS she was incredibly shaken up by the incident.
Adventure World chief executive Andrew Sharry praised the two park guests who leaped into action and took her out of the water for playing a “pivotal role” in saving her life.
“Early this afternoon an unsupervised five-year-old girl was retrieved from the main pool by the two closest guests,” he said.
“Our lifeguard checked vitals and commenced CPR immediately. Our First Response Team arrived and provided further support.
“The girl responded within moments and was then stabilised until the ambulance arrived.”
The little girl’s condition improved after being rushed to FSH.
She was then taken to Perth Children’s Hospital by ambulance and is now in a stable condition. One witnesses described the event as “horrible”.
“A young girl, she was helped and fortunately taken to hospital breathing,” Sarah Louise said on social media. “The life guards and members of the public did a great job.
“Was a horrible scene.”
Children under the age of 10 have to be “actively” supervised at all times under Adventure World’s condition of entry.
“We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the guests who played a pivotal role in this incident,” Mr Sharry said.
“Our thoughts are with the young girl and her family.
“We have reached out to the parents to offer our support.”
Hundreds of children and their families were inside Adventure World at the time.
The amusement park remained opened to the public following the incident.
