Staten Island, NY – A 14-month-old boy who fell into a swimming pool in Tottenville on May 29, 2010 died of his injuries Saturday, June 5, as reported by

On Saturday, May 29, the unconscious toddler was pulled from a pool in his family’s backyard on Brehaut Avenue at approximately 12:15 p.m. Firefighters from Engine Co. 151 arrived quickly due to their close proximity and immediately began attempts to save the toddler’s life. Officials reported that while revival efforts began immediately, it took nearly 15 minutes to get a faint pulse from the boy.

It was reported that paramedics ran to the house because it was a faster response than gearing up the truck. The firehouse is five houses down from the house where the accident occurred.

After resuscitation and stabilization, Vincent Fougere was transported to Staten Island University Hospital. The boy had gone into cardiac arrest.

A blessing for the child is scheduled to be held Thursday, June 10 at the Bedell-Pizzo Funeral Home in Tottenville.

Safety experts use situations like these to stress the importance of pool fences, locks and alarms. Lt. Morisi of the FDNY explained the easiest way to prevent these situations, stating, “Keep an eye on your kids…It’s summer, it’s hot, I understand the pools, but you have to take safety first.”
