We were there. Have no idea how long he was under. Was worked on on the deck for about 30 minutes...ish. We didn't see him being pulled from the water...just a lady in her swimsuit giving chest compressions. Later a fellow passenger went on an excursion with her and she said that an 8 year old discovered him under water. He alerted adults and this lady and a male doctor started CPR. So thankful God provided those angels at that exact moment for Chase!

We started praying immediately. Lots of moms were crying all over the ship. Watched his mom and dad run over when they found out...literally etched in my brain. I can still see dad laying on the ground...later read he was pleading with God to take him and not Chase. Mom had to be held up by a friend/family member and a Disney rep. It was HORRIFIC to watch their grief. Medical team came...ambu bagged him. We heard he had a faint heartbeat and then they finally got him on a backboard and transported to the hospital. Police team followed and Disney moved the sail away party to the atrium. We all felt so empty. Hard to enjoy a vacation when this poor family was dealing with their son's life hanging in the balance.

Soooooo glad he's alive..but he needs lots of prayers. We prayed all week! And will continue to do so! Much love and hugs to the Lykken family...and especially to Chase the Warrior!!!!!
