STATELINE, Nev. (CBS / AP) — A Solano County man who almost drowned at a Lake Tahoe resort on Monday night has been discharged from the hospital, local emergency management officials said.
At the Mont Bleu Resort Casino and Spa in Stateline, Nevada, security guards Mike Griffin and Chris Rehn dove into 9-foot deep indoor pool to retrieve 25-year-old Charanverr Singh of Fairfield. They proceeded to resuscitate him poolside while waiting for ambulances to arrive, Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District spokesman Eric Guevin said.READ MORE: As COVID Delta Variant Infections Subside Experts Warn of Winter Surge
At around 9:15 p.m., a nearby spa attendant heard Singh and his girlfriend scream for help. She was able to throw in a buoyant life-ring to bring the woman to safety. But Singh was underwater for more than two minutes and after being retrieved, had no pulse and was blue and unresponsive.
