Crestview Toddler Dies Day After Being Pulled From Family Pool

A 3-year old Crestview boy has died; one day after his father pulled him from the family swimming pool and frantically administered C-P-R.

Peyton Bullock of Highland Hills Road had been out of sight only a few minutes while the family was decorating the house for Christmas on Sunday November 27th. They had just moved in to the house about a month previous.

Peyton’s father found him in the pool and immediately began administering C-P-R, followed by EMS personnel called to the scene.

The toddler was taken to North Okaloosa Medical Center where doctors were able to re-establish a heartbeat. Peyton was later transferred to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola but passed away Monday evening around 5:30.

    Well your little boy is with you always. Call me crazy if you want, but my mom passed away in 2009 and some times at night when it's cold,I can hear her ask," do you need a blanket" ? I know she's still here. And your child, he does not hurt, he does not mourn, but he is with you.He is o-kay. Accidents happen. Your son would not want you to live with the what if's, people say. Be proud of the time he was with you in the flesh, because he is with you now in the spirit. All things are possible with God.
