How did a 13-year-old boy end up in a medically-induced coma after an incident at a pool inside a Buffalo school when school officials say the teen was walking and talking?
A woman who was at the pool Tuesday at Waterfront School #95 shared this video with 7 Eyewitness News. It shows a very chaotic scene.
Students from School #81 were at the pool that day testing out their boats made of recycled materials. In the video, you can see a boy going across the pool on one of those boats using a kayak paddle as other kids line the edges and play in the water.
If you watch carefully, you can see 13-year-old Larryn Watkins come up for air near the kayak before becoming unresponsive. A short time passes before officials start shouting for kids to clear the pool and the teen is pulled out of the water.
In another clip shared with 7 Eyewitness News, school officials work to resuscitate Larryn. You can see the teen moving his hand after his eyes open.
