DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A young child in Daviess County, Kentucky was flown to the hospital after being pulled from a pond.
Around 7:30 Friday night, Owensboro Daviess County Central Dispatch received a 911 call for a possible drowning from a home on North Chestnut Grove Road in the Lewisport area.
Emergency crews found several people performing CPR on a 2 year old male next to a pond.
The child was then taken to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital but was later flown to Norton Children’s Hospital Emergency Department in Louisville, Kentucky in critical condition, according to authories.
