A two-year-old boy is safe in hospital after his parents saved him from drowning Sunday afternoon near Stittsville.
Ottawa paramedics said they received a call around 4:30 p.m. Sunday. The boy had been found in a pool after not being seen for two to five minutes.
When he was found, paramedics said the child had turned blue and was not breathing. His parents reportedly gave him CPR at which time the child vomited and started to breathe.
When paramedics arrived they said the child was lethargic and crying, at which time they gave him oxygen therapy and re-warmed him.
They said the child was in stable condition when he arrived at hospital.
