PDO families had gathered at the Al Sawadi Hotel for the annual year-end party. After dinner at around 20.30 hrs, the 3 year old daughter of a PDO employee escaped the care of her parents and wandered unnoticed towards the pool and fell into the deep end.
A hotel guest, sitting at a table nearby noticed some splashing movement in the pool. Without hesitation he jumped in and rescued the kid.
The kid was still conscious and was immediately given first aid by the farther. She was then transported to the Sawadi clinic for further observation. After about 30 minutes the doctor released the kid as fit.
