Police: Caroline Co. Toddler Flown to Baltimore After Near Drowning

Posted: Updated:

FEDERALSBURG, Md.- A toddler in Caroline County is lucky to be alive after a near drowning on Wednesday.

Federalsburg Police Chief Don Nagle tells WBOC an uncle was watching the 22-month-old near the Federalsburg Marina when the child wandered from the playground to Marshyhope Creek and fell in.

Nagle says a woman saw the toddler motionless in the water and someone was able to pull the child out. According to the chief, the uncle started CPR and a paramedic took over.

The child did start breathing again and was flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Nagle said the child is in stable condition at this time.

He adds that an investigation is underway and it's unclear whether any charges are forthcoming.
