PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — Two people are hospitalized after being rescued by lifeguards at Hawaiian Falls Water Park Saturday.

Park officials say an 83-year-old man felt dizzy and passed out while standing in the children’s area at about 11:15 a.m. Saturday. Lifeguards rushed to help him and began CPR. They also used a defibrillator on the man, according to Austin-Travis County EMS.

Medics continued CPR as he was taken to St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center.

At about 4 p.m. Saturday, lifeguards also saved a child from nearly drowning in the children’s area at the park.
