A heroic firefighter from Georgia rescued his two-year-old son from drowning, administering CPR for 30 minutes until emergency responders arrived.

Josh Ingram, a dedicated firefighter, had just returned from a family trip to their lakehouse in Oklahoma. As they prepared to leave on Sunday, July 17, tragedy struck.

While packing up their belongings, Josh noticed his son, Briggs, missing. Frantically searching, he spotted clothing floating in the water and realized Briggs was in danger. Without hesitation, Josh leaped into action, pulling his son from the water and immediately initiating CPR.

For 30 agonizing minutes, Josh worked tirelessly to revive his son until paramedics arrived. Miraculously, Briggs began breathing on his own, offering a glimmer of hope to the devastated family.

Despite signs of improvement, Briggs’ condition remained critical, prompting the family to seek guidance from experts in drowning cases. Amidst an outpouring of support from their community, the Ingrams remained steadfast in their hope for Briggs’ recovery.

Tragically, after five days of fighting, the fire department announced Briggs’ passing on Friday, July 22. The Ingram family was shattered by the loss, transforming what was meant to be a joyful weekend into one of profound sorrow.

In the wake of their unimaginable loss, the Ingrams have requested privacy as they mourn their beloved son. However, they are deeply grateful for the overwhelming support they’ve received from the Bremen community.

To help with medical expenses and funeral costs, the Bremen fire department established a GoFundMe page, which has garnered an unexpected $20,000 in donations.

Through their grief, Meshea Briggs, Briggs’ mother, expressed her unwavering faith in God, finding solace amidst the pain. Despite the heartache, the Ingrams are uplifted by the outpouring of love and support from friends, family, and strangers alike.
