The family of a two-year-old are trying to come to grips with the reality that someone could suffer a seizure at such a young age after paramedics attached to the Micoud Fire Station were unable to resuscitate her.
According to officials, a call indicating that a two-year-old was experiencing a seizure was made to the Micoud Fire Station on Tuesday morning.
On arrival at the Anse Ger residence, emergency personal found the baby girl unresponsive and pulseless.
The life-saving manoeuvre, C.P.R was immediately administered and continued en route to the St. Jude Hospital.
She, however, remained unresponsive and with no change in her vitals when she was handed over to the medical staff at St. Jude.
According to medical professionals from Mayo Clinic, factors that increase the risk of having a febrile seizure include young age with the greatest risk occurring between 12 and 18 months of age and family history.
