The county’s Bureau of Fire and Emergency Services said that when the bureau’s emergency responders arrived at the scene, they found friends of the two drowned students were administering CPR on them, but both had lost vital signs, according to CNA. They were sent to Pingtung Christian Hospital and Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital for emergency treatment.
