Off-duty Plymouth firefighter and police officer rescue 3-year-old boy from pond

According to fire officials, an off-duty Plymouth firefighter and an off-duty police officer rescued a 3-year-old boy from a pond on Thursday evening.

The off-duty firefighter and officer, who were both attending Family Night at Camp Clark on Hedges Pond Road, found the child in distress across the pond at around 7:15 p.m.

According to Plymouth Fire Chief Edward Bradley, the child was in the water with a child life vest, but the child’s face went underwater, and off-duty first responders quickly entered the water and pulled the child out.

The firefighters and officers – along with their wives, who are both nurses – began performing CPR on the child, who was responsive but showing signs of labored breathing.

The child was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Plymouth, before being taken by medical helicopter to Boston Children’s Hospital.

“I appreciate the quick thinking of highly trained first responders and their wives at the time of this incident, and our collective thoughts and prayers go out to the child’s family,” Bradley said.
