Neighbor helped save boy
A 20-month-old Greenville boy is recovering after he fell into a neighbor’s pond Saturday and nearly drowned.
According to Michigan State Police, Konnor Baker was outside with a family member Saturday morning when he went missing. He was found a short time later in the pond, completely unresponsive. Neighbor Raymond Case performed CPR until Michigan State Police Trooper Patrick Agema and Montcalm County EMS arrived. A paramedic took the child to the ambulance and tried to resuscitate him, but the paramedic could not find a pulse, and the toddler did not respond to any stimulus.
Konnor was transported to Sheridan Community Hospital, where resuscitation efforts continued, and Konnor’s heart finally restarted, and he began breathing on his own. He was then airlifted to DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, where he is recovering.
