A toddler who fell into an icy creek was brought back to life after an hour and 41 minutes of CPR.

Gardell Martin was playing with his two brothers when he fell into the stream running through their five-acre property near Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania.

A neighbour found him nearly quarter of a mile downstream.

Janet Weis Children's Hospital in Danville said the 22-month-old was brought back to life by a team of about 50 people in a "stunning" recovery.

He is now home from hospital having made a full recovery, and his mother Rose called it "an act of God".
