The child, who almost drowned in a swimming pool in the Sverdlovsk region, is now in intensive care. Doctors are very careful in their forecasts. Why instructors and dozens of pool visitors did not notice the drowning teenager, the TV channel "360" will tell.
Dozens of people were swimming in the pool, but the child who went to the bottom was not immediately noticed. 9-year-old Stepan spent about four minutes under water. At this time, two lifeguard instructors were on duty in the pool. One of them went out, the other got distracted. And only after one of the visitors began to scream, the rescuer threw himself into the water and pulled out the child.
In the pool, Stepan was without parents. He did not have a subscription, paid for a one-time visit and swam in the company of friends. Most likely, he swam into the depths, choked and began to sink. Stepan was taken to the Yekaterinburg hospital in the intensive care unit.
He was admitted on mechanical ventilation, in a coma, but this is a drug-induced coma. We specially introduced it to reduce the negative effects on the brain.

When the accident happened, Stepan's mother was at home with her second little son. She claims that her eldest can swim and it is not the first time he has come to the pool. Now she is with him in intensive care.
He went with me in the summer, with coaches, to the section. They looked after and I knew that there were instructors who should look after everything. That is, if the child does not know how to swim, they should have been given oversleeves. That is, I calmly let go, it was not the first time he went there.
- Maramzina Yulia, mother of the boy.
The school is shocked by what happened. The students were instructed on safety precautions, and the children know how to behave on the water. On the fact of the accident, an inspection is scheduled. Prosecutors are investigating why the rescue instructors violated the regulations. It is known that one of them, who saved the child, works as a life safety teacher. In the pool, they said that the employees who showed inattention were decided not to be removed from work.
