Child, 7, recovering after near-drowning

Posted: Updated:

Deputies in Manatee County say a 7-year-old child nearly drowned Wednesday and had to be resuscitated.

Malechi Sable was pulled from a pool at 218 50th Street West. Several children were in the pool, and a man noticed Sable face down.

He pulled her from the pool and began giving her CPR, deputies said. It may have just saved the child's life.

The child was taken to Blake Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
