The next questions are important too. Once first aid was administered, was the CPR done properly? Was the ambulance called in a timely manner? If any delays occurred, for example, did those delays cause or worsen the damage? If the administration of the CPR was done improperly, did that cause damage? Also, was the initial drowning or near drowning caused by predictable factors? Sometimes, for example, under staffing of lifeguards may be a contributing factor. We’ve had claims where there were just too many people in the pool. If you have too many heads in the pool and not enough lifeguards watching, unfortunately these things can and do happen.
