Beijing, Mar 14: A 5-year-old boy who was drowning in a pond was miraculously survived even after his heart stopped for almost two hours, according to reports.
It is learnt that the boy slipped and fell into a fish pond while he was playing on his own.
Yang Yu, 53, was holidaying in the town with his parents when he spotted the boy's trousers floating on the surface of the water. The boy was later rushed to the hospital where the Doctors said the boy was not breathing.
He and his nurses attempted CPR for up to 40 minutes and were prepared to declare the child dead, but the boy's mum and granddad begged him to continue trying.
They resumed CPR and put the boy on assisted breathing when, after a full 110 minutes, he started breathing on his own again, according to reports.
