Windham toddler revived by landscaper on the mend after fall into pool
The little boy, who was revived by a landscaper working on a job site next door after his mother pulled him out of the water July 17, was released from the Elliot Hospital in Manchester last week according to Windham Fire Chief Tom McPherson.
"He's doing remarkably well," McPherson said on Friday, noting that Conner and his mother, Rachel St. Laurent, stopped by the Windham Fire Station for a private tour earlier that day.
During the visit, Conner and his mother had the chance to personally thank the first responders who'd assisted them that day.
They also had a chance to chat with Nashua resident Matthew Pulomena, a worker from Design Works Landscaping, who successfully performed several cycles of CPR on the unconscious little boy until he began coughing up water.
Windham rescue crews arrived on the scene moments later and rushed Conner to Parkland Medical Center. He was later transferred to the Elliot Hospital where he remained for about a week.
On Friday morning, Conner was treated to a special fire truck ride and was given some gifts from the firemen.
McPherson said the family asked that photos of the visit not be shared with the media and urged members of the public to respect their privacy at this time.
