Four children were taken to hospital with cardiac arrest after falling into the snow

Four children were taken to hospital with cardiac arrest after falling into the snow

The West Midlands Fire Service in Great Britain rescued several people from the icy waters of Lake Solihull on Sunday. They were sliding on the frozen lake, but the ice was not thick enough and it receded. At least four children have been hospitalized due to cardiac arrest. Their condition was still worrying Sunday evening.

Emergency services were still present at Babbs Mill Park in Kingshurst, Solihull on Sunday evening. They searched in the dark for anyone missing.

Emergency services were alerted around 2pm on Sunday. It has been freezing for several days at Solihull and the lake at Babbs Mill Park is frozen over. However, there was a clear sign that it was forbidden to walk on the ice because the ice layer was not thick enough.

But on Sunday, small groups of children ventured onto the ice and by noon the group continued to grow. Unfortunately, what the police feared has happened. Suddenly the ice began to crack and the children who were sliding into the icy water fell.

The fire brigade deployed boats and divers. “The victims received medical care at the scene from firefighting and emergency medical teams before being transferred to nearby hospitals,” it added.

West Midlands Ambulance Service Commander Cameron McVitie said all four children had gone into cardiac arrest. Two are now being treated at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and two at Heartlands Hospital. Their condition remains alarming.
