JUST IN: The 11 month old Lakewood infant who was airlifted unconscious after a near drowning at a pool earlier this week, has emerged from a Coma, shocking the family and doctors, family members and friend say.

The young boy, Elimelech ben Faiga, was found unconscious in the pool of the home the family was renting in Florida. He was flown to an area hospital in critical condition.

The child was removed from a respirator this morning after Doctors discovered that the child hadn’t suffered any brain damage as a result of the tragic incident, sources say. And about 30 minutes ago, the child woke up.
