The boy was submerged for a short time before he was pulled from the water. Witnesses called 911 and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s air rescue unit responded.

The sheriff’s aviation unit hoisted the boy from the base of the waterfall. A doctor determined he was not breathing at the time of the rescue.

The baby was taken to a nearby trauma center for treatment and was uninjured, sheriff’s officials said.
