NEAR DROWNING: Woman Nearly Drowns In The Oaks

UPDATE: We’ve learned unofficially that the victim is 17, thus the confusion as to whether the incident involved a child or adult. Sources tell BocaNewsNow that the young woman suffered an epileptic seizure and likely should not have been in the jacuzzi at all. 

BOCA RATON, FL ( (From Fire Rescue) — At 11:44am crews responded to reports of a near drowning in the Oaks at Boca Raton development. First arriving crews found an adult female that had suffered a near drowning event. The patient, an adult female, was transported to a local area hospital for treatment.

Ed. Note: initial reports of a child drowning in The Oaks were incorrect. The Oaks is located at the intersection of 441 and Clint Moore Road in Boca Raton.
