  • The parents of a little girl who nearly drowned in their family spa have shared their heartbreak at learning their daughter had been signalling for help but was too small to see.

    Nine-year-old Mahalia Lade had been playing in the spa at the family’s home in 珀斯 在一月 30 when her parents Vicky and Peterwho were sitting nearbysuddenly noticed she went quiet.

    Mahalia had slipped over and hit her head which knocked her unconscious and moments later her hair became stuck in the spa’s jets.

    She tried to free herself and held her hand up straight to alert her parents but her arms were too short and couldn’t reach above the water.

    ‘Her explaining how she was trying to get our attention broke our hearts, we were a metre away,’ Mr Lade told Daily Mail Australia.

    ‘The corpse-like look she had is something I’ll never get out of my mind.

    Mr Lade said she tried to scream underwater but moments later passed out.

    Racing to pull their little girl out of the water, Mr Lade immediately started performing CPR while his wife called for an ambulance.

    But after calling triple zero, instead of an operator she was greeted to a Covid message telling callers if they needed information on the virus to go to a specific website.

    Mrs Lade hung up thinking she had rang the wrong number and it would be a minute-and-a-half before they got onto an operator.

    ‘I just thought that was ridiculous, if I didn’t know CPR and Vicky was relying on the instructions from an operator, that one-and-a-half minute would have been too late,’ Mr Lade said.

    Mahalia was taken to hospital where she spent two nights including one in the ICU but is now recovering well.

    Detailing the horrors of seeing his lifeless little girl, Mr Lade said he and his wife had been just a metre away when Mahalia lost consciousness.

    ‘She was dead. She had no pulse and wasn’t breathing. Our youngest daughter Morgan, 六, was witnessing it all and just screaming, Vicky was screaming,’ 他说.

    ‘Vicki grabbed her arm and it was completely limp, she was just beside herself with Mahalia’s face being so blue.

    Matted hair was found in the spa’s jets when Mr Lade drained it, a painful reminder of Mahalia’s fight.

    Mr Lade had performed CPR for several minutes before he felt the slightest murmur of his daughter’s heartbeat.

    Blood and mucus were coming out of Mahalia’s mouth before she was rushed away in an ambulance.

    The message Mrs Lade heard after phoning for an ambulance was a nation-wide initiative by the Federal Government to direct those with Covid to the health website, instead of taking up vital emergency calls needed for those in life-threatening situations.

    ‘You have dialled emergency triple zero. If you require information in relation to Covid-19 please visit healthdirect.gov.au,’ the message says.

    The Department of Infrastructure confirmed to 7 新闻 that following a review, the automated Covid message will now be scrapped on Monday.

    ‘We’re stokedalthough a little worried about the weekend,’ Mrs Lade said.

    The couple said despite the trauma of nearly losing their eldest child, they were determined to turn it into a positive and raise awareness about the need to know CPR.

    As well as helping eradicate the Covid message, the Lades are teaming up with St John’s Ambulance to provide first aid courses.

    As for Mahalia, she’s now nearly back to the same little girl she was.

    ‘It’ll take a bit longer for to regain her strength back. Mahalia needs to learn to slow down because she’s a super active kid,’ Mrs Lade said.

    The Lades know the fear that they might lose a child all too well, as their youngest daughter has been diagnosed with cancer.

    ‘We’ve had the scare of losing a child and when it happens again with our healthy child, we’ve really looked at each other and decided to make it a positive,’ Mr Lade said.

    ‘It’s been a tough couple of years for us.

    The Lades are hoping their story will prompt more Australians to learn CPR.

    ‘It’s better to know something and not need it than need something and not know it,’ the father said.

    ‘It will save a life.
