Webre-Hayes and a crony were diving in about 9 feet of H2O around 150 yards offshore of a San Diego suburb of Encinitas on Sept. 30 when a occurrence occurred.

Badly bleeding, Webre-Hayes was pulled onto a boat by a organisation of rescuers and airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital.
“We got very, really lucky, and we know it, and we are really thankful,” Webre-Hayes’ mom, Ellie Hayes, said.

Despite a frightful life-threatening experience, Webre-Hayes pronounced he can’t wait to get behind in a water.
