Dad in critical condition after incident on New Orleans lakefront



A father of two is in critical condition following a Sunday morning incident on the New Orleans lakefront.

Shortly after 11 a.m., two children were playing on the steps at the Lakefront when one of the children fell in.

The other child went in after the 8-year-old at which time their father went in after both of them. A good samaritan also jumped in and was able to get the kids out, but the father never resurfaced.

NOFD arrived on scene and two firemen went in and found the father underwater.

EMS was able to revive the father and he has since been transported to the hospital in critical condition.

The incident occurred at 1800 Lakeshore.

Coast Guard along with Levee Board police also responded.

The children were checked out at the scene.
