October 10, 2014 - Fifteen Month-Old Boy Rescued After Falling in Pond behind Hillsboro Library

At 2:20, Friday afternoon, October 10, Hillsboro Fire Department Engine #3 from the Ronler Acres Station was dispatched to a drowning in the duck pond behind the Hillsboro Public Library at NE Brookwood Parkway.

Firefighters arrived to find fifteen month-old Dylan Guglielmo and his mother Alicia Guglielmo seated on a bench next to the duck pond. Both mother and child were soaking wet, Dylan was crying loudly. The family was surrounded by bystanders who had assisted in rescuing the boy. 

Witnesses reported that Mrs. Guglielmo, her young daughter and Dylan were feeding the ducks next to Samantha Milam and her two children at the raised platform behind the library.  Suddenly Dylan slipped beneath the railing and fell into the cold water. Mrs. Guglialmo jumped in the water to save her son and was quickly followed by Samantha. Unable to touch the bottom of the pond, the two moms struggled to lift Dylan into the hands of another bystander, Yakov Malinov.  Others helped the two women safely out the pond.
