Neighbor helps save 2yo boy pulled from Plymouth Street pool

A 2-year-old boy is expected to make a full recovery after being pulled from a backyard pool on Plymouth Street.

Abington Fire received a call Monday afternoon that the boy had fallen into the pool. A 19-year-old family friend performed chest compressions until emergency responders arrived, according to WCVB-TV.

Paramedics took over treatments and rushed him to South Shore Hospital, the Abington Fire Department said in a statement posted on social media.

Savennah Mendes-Rodridgues, the family friend, told Boston 25 News she is CPR certified from her training as a registered dental assistant. She said she fortunately was home Monday studying for a dental school admissions exam instead of being at work.
