A five-year-old boy was saved after being pulled out by currents into the Kinneret, Magen David Adom said on Saturday.

The boy nearly drowned before being brought to shore where paramedics performed CPR until the boy's pulse returned and he began breathing.

Afterwards, the medics brought the boy to a local hospital for further observation.
