On Air Personality, Temilola Akinmuda has reported on a baby that almost got drowned in the Lekki flood today. In her tweets, the baby was rescued and has been taken to the hospital.
According to the Cool 96.9 FM presenter’s tweet:
“I just saw a baby drown in this flood right in front of me. The baby was miraculously revived, I don’t think I’ve ever been this scared in my life and this wasn’t even my child,” she began.
The Cool FM Presenter said she called the 112, Lagos emergency number, to report to the case but was turned down on condition that the number was only for ‘real’ emergencies.
“I had to call back,” Temilola said. “They still didn’t come till effort to resuscitate the baby became successful.”
