A toddler escaped death at the Vigie Beach today, Dec. 13 as the country observes National Day.
According to law enforcement sources, a two-year-old girl of Corinth, Gros Islet was transported to Victoria Hospital via ambulance after a near drowning incident at the beach, around 4 p.m.
The sources told St. Lucia News Online that the child’s mother and her friends were on the beach when the mother turned her back for a “second or two”.
By the time the mother turned around, the child had wandered into the water, and was only submerged for a short period of time before she was pulled out of the water by friends, according to the sources.
The child was fully conscious and alert when the ambulance arrived on the scene.
