Dan and his girlfriend, Courtney, who declined to give their last names, were visiting her family, and he awoke and saw emergency personnel searching the neighborhood, he said. Dan went outside and saw a small child, whom he presumed was dead, in the pool at the house where he was staying, he said.

Patrol Officers and EMS unsuccessfully administered CPR to the child and then transported the child to the AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus.
