Guam - A one-year-old Japanese tourist was pulled from the waters off the Agat Marina this morning. Guam Fire Department officials and the Coast Guard were activated to the near drowning report at 11:06am. Rescue officials tell KUAM News that the baby girl went out with her family on the Margarita charter vessel, which is used as a tour boat for dolphin watching and diving.
Preliminary reports show that the baby was swimming in open water with her mother when she suddenly went unconscious. The Coast Guard helped the baby and the mother back onto the vessel while GFD was on shore waiting to ensure the baby was breathing properly. The child was first rushed to Naval Hospital then taken to the Guam Memorial Hospital for treatment where her condition is currently unknown.
