Wednesday, 21 June 2023 - 5 minutes

Last weekend, members of the public helped to rescue a 6-year-old girl from Lake Zug, immediately calling the emergency services and starting resuscitation. Their prompt action and the fast arrival of the medical team meant that the girl soon began breathing by herself again, and she was transported to hospital by helicopter for further treatment.

In this Health Matters, Dr Michelle reminds us about how to react in a drowning situation and what first aid steps to take. So important with the summer holiday season almost upon us.
