An 18-month-old McDonough toddler is in stable condition at an Atlanta hospital after surviving a fall into a fish pond Tuesday night.

Henry police spokeswoman Officer Christy Nebel said Bryson Hinson, son of Zachary Hinson and Karen Hinson, is recovering at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

"He's in stable condition," said Nebel. "His mother says he's going to be OK, he's expected to make a full recovery."

Bryson Hinson fell into the pond at 3673 Airline Road around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday. Nebel said his father pulled him out and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until Henry firefighters arrived.

"He was not breathing and had no pulse," she said.

Bryson was then airlifted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The Hinsons could not be reached for comment Friday.
