A teenage boy has been flown to hospital in a critical condition after being pulled unresponsive from the water at a caravan park in Sydney’s northwest.
Paramedics have praised the actions of bystanders who were faced with a “devastating” scene in Sackville on Monday afternoon.
NSW Police said the boy, believed to be 16, was fighting for life after being found in the Hawkesbury River just before 12.20pm.
Members of the public performed CPR on the boy as they waited for NSW Ambulance paramedics to arrive on the scene at Tizzana Road.
It’s understood the incident took place at the Sackville Ski Gardens caravan park on that street.
The boy was stabilised at the scene and has been rushed to hospital for treatment.
