A 3-year-old toddler who was about to drown was miraculously saved by a 7-year-old from Sacramento.
Massiah Browne, 7, who lives in the apartment building, walked down to the pool last week to enjoy it when he saw something unusual.
Second-grader Massiah told ‘Good Morning America’ that he saw a boy at the bottom of the pool when he was just playing in it. I then went to collect him.
A relative of Massiah’s, Savannah, age 9, assisted in pulling them both to dry land after swimming down into 6 feet of water and grabbing the arm of a 3-year-old child whose eyes and mouth were open.
Adults who heard what was going on contacted 911 and hurried to the scene to assist. According to ABC, Savannah’s mother gave the infant CPR before the same Fire and Rescue personnel arrived and helped them breathe again.
According to a Sacramento Fire Department representative, “the kid was transported in critical condition with advanced life support measures conducted by Sacramento firefighters.”
Marcus, a boxer who competed for the United States in the 2012 London Olympics, said his kid Massiah loves the water and swims like ‘a fish,’ adding that despite the surprise, it really showed who Massiah is.
‘He’s incredibly sympathetic, so for him to do that, I mean, it’s really nothing out of the ordinary. It’s just unbelievable that he’s seven and he’s doing something like that.’
