Victoria Derbyshire interview with the mother

“A two-year-old girl has made an almost complete recovery after spending nearly 20 minutes at the bottom of a pool. Scans showed Oluchi Nwaubani had been starved of oxygen for some 18 minutes – three times longer than the brain can usually survive – in Bromley, London……As well as the rapid, high level of intensive care Oluchi received, her youth combined with the cold water may also have helped her beat the odds. “
