Kid Drowns For 2 Minutes Before Instructor Notices (China)

Apparently he ended up surviving somehow. I was sure he was dead. He remains in intensive care though. That was some awful adult supervision. She never even looked at most of the kids..

I know the kid didn't die but I didn't know where I should post this. Can be moved to appropriate section by mod Also, sorry for the annoying watermark. I can't get rid of it

Horrifying moment boy, three, nearly drowns when swimming ring flips over and leaves him underwater for TWO MINUTES
  • Boy was taking part in a swimming lesson at a kindergarten in north-west China
  • He was seen struggling desperately while being immersed in water upside down
  • Neither of the two instructors at the children's pool noticed the drowning boy
  • The child was finally removed from the pool and remains under intensive care


A three-year-old child in north-west China nearly drowned after he flipped over his rubber ring and was left struggling underwater for at least two minutes.

Neither of the two instructors at the children's pool noticed the boy immersed in the water upside down despite standing right next to him.

The child was finally removed from the pool after one of the teachers noticed his motionless body. He remains under intensive care in hospital.

The boy was taking part in a swimming lesson at a kindergarten in Zhangjiakou city, Hebei province when the accident happened.

Surveillance footage of the horrifying incident shows the boy wearing an inflatable ring playing in the pool among nine other classmates.

He then accidentally flips backwards, plunging his head underwater.

The boy was seen desperately to stay afloat, wriggling his legs in the air and trying to flip his ring back.

His teacher, who was also in the pool, was seen attending to another student and did not notice the drowning child. It did not occur to the other children who were beside him that something was wrong with their friend.

After struggling in vain for about 40 seconds, the child eventually ran out of breath and passed out. He was seen floating motionless at one end of the pool.

Nearly half a minute had passed before the boy was finally discovered by his shocked teachers.

When he was lifted out of the water, the little boy was not breathing and his faced had turned purple, according to Hebei Youth Daily.

He was immediately taken to hospital where doctors fortunately saved him.

The incident sparked outrage among net users - many of whom are parents themselves.

'The kindergarten should be held responsible for this incident. The child could have died,' one user commented.

'The accident could have caused permanent brain damage to the boy! The teachers' actions are just unacceptable,' another said.

Drowning is the leading cause of injury death among children aged one to 14 years old in China, according to a Global report on drowning commissioned by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2014.

Almost twice as many children aged between five and 14 die in the country from drowning than traffic accidents, it stated.

Why did the instructor need a floatie thing? I would think that a three year old could turn himself over, but obviously not poor kid.

Re: Kid Drowns For 2 Minutes Before Instructor Notices (China)

I don’t get it. You’re in a swimming school.. they’re floating and it’s not like anyone is doing anything. Why take so long to peruse the perameters and makes sure everyone is cool. This is crazy! Incompetence! Children should be watched at ALL times especially around water!!

I wondered the same thing. Only thing I can think of was that the instructor couldn’t swim either.
