Girl Choked on Swing
(2008-04-23)
(wgvu) - CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 5-year-old Grand Rapids-area
girl has been taken to a hospital after choking when her neck
became entangled in the chain of a swing.
WOOD-TV reports that it happened Wednesday afternoon at the
girl's home in Kent County's Cascade Township, while she and a
friend were playing on a swing set.
At some point, the friend went and told the victim's mother that
the girl wouldn't wake up.
The woman rushed to the swing set and untangled her daughter
from the swing.
The county sheriff's department says the girl was not breathing
when deputies arrived.
They administered CPR and found a pulse before an ambulance
arrived.
The girl's condition and identity are not available.
