FOX NEWS - A 6-year-old Maryland boy needed an “unusual rescue” Wednesday after getting tangled upside-down in a rope swing over a lake that left his head partially in the water, officials said.
The boy’s head was in the water, but not underwater, so he was able to breathe, rescuers said.
A civilian at the scene had been helping the boy to keep his head above water until firefighters arrived to save the child, WBAL-TV reported.
Fire officials said crews extricated the boy quickly and he was doing well.
Rescuers added that the boy now “has a story to tell his friends.”
