Toddler’s Heart Restarts after Three Hours of CPR
Waylon Saunders was found face down in an icy swimming pool. His body temperature was so low, paramedics couldn’t get a reading. When he arrived at the hospital, he had no pulse and was “legally dead and had been for a while.” But a team at Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital in Ontario performed CPR for 3 hours without stopping while warming his body. After almost three hours, Waylon’s heart restarted. Here’s more from The Good News Network.
In Dublin, New York and California, cities that closed streets to cars in favor of pedestrians during the pandemic are keeping the streets car free. Here’s more from GoodGoodGood.

All great stories, JoAnna, but the cat story touched my heart. We adopted our first cat after someone tossed him (kitten) in the river behind my cabinet shop. He wouldn’t leave my side, until I got him home. He jumped to my wife and didn’t leave her side for 18 years.

The cat story touched my heart, too, as did your cat story. I won’t say what I want to do to someone who threw a cat in the river, but I’m very thankful you came to the rescue!

He crawled out on his own. One of the other business owners told me what happened. I took him in and fed him. He glued himself to me.

Uplifting and beautiful stories, all of them. The little boy who was declared dead for 3 hours and yet! With dedicated help and care came back to life. How wonderful, and all the others including the cute little cat.

The rescue of the toddler is amazing. Wonderful that the team continued CPR when it seemed impossible for the child to be revived!
The rescue of the cat is heart-touching. Love that the cat found a new home and became a team mascot! ❤
So happy to read your good news today, JoAnna!

The story of the toddler and the rescued cat just stole my heart. Both of them were given a second chance to live.
March 1, 2023 at 9:02 pm
Yes! I had not consciously made that connection of second chances. So glad your heart was stolen in a good way. 🙂

The story about toddler with a stopped heart and CPR for 3 hours seemed too amazing to be true, but it is. I am dazed and impressed.
March 1, 2023 at 10:14 pm
I think the intense cold helped – I’ve read about that, but three hours is pretty amazing. Thanks for reading and appreciating the good news!
