As owners at Reunion, we have been long standing fans of the Reunion Resort security team.
The Reunion team’s ‘light but firm touch’ is a hallmark of a great security department, and especially in an upscale community like ours.
Today though, I was delighted to read the latest security bulletin from our HOA.
A life was literally saved this weekend.
A very fast acting mother, and an incredibly cool response from Officers Rogers and Cruz, gave a family their son’s life back, following an incident in the Terraces pool.
PRESS RELEASE – FROM ORAINE WILLIAMS – AEGIS HOA AUG 24th 2016
On August 20, 2016, at approx. 19:55 Security Officer Isai Cruz was on patrol at the Terraces swimming pool when he was alerted that an unconscious and unresponsive 3-year-old Napoleon Alexander had just been pulled from the bottom of the Terraces pool by his mother, Napoleon was not breathing.
Officer Tom Rodgers who was also the scene immediately called 911 and went to his vehicle to retrieve the units AED in hopes of reviving the child. Officer Cruz began CPR on Napoleon and after a short period of time was able to revive him, Napoleon was able to cough up the water in his lungs and began to breath on his own.
EMS arrived and transported the Napoleon to the hospital where he remained for 2 days.
Napoleon was released from the hospital Tuesday with no long term injuries and in good health.
Officer Cruz was commended for his quick actions and will be recognized by CWS for his life savings actions.
Pool safety is absolutely crucial of course, and we can only hope that Officer Cruz and his team don’t need to be called upon in the future again at Reunion.
We always advise guests to follow great pool safety advice when in Florida.
