Dr. John Blundell was staying at the Courtyard by Marriott in Montvale when he witnessed an unresponsive boy pulled from the hotel's pool.
Dr. Blundell performed CPR and revived the child prior to first responders arriving, Montvale Police Chief Joseph Sanfilippo said.
A Montvale officer was less than a minute away when he was dispatched to the hotel. The officer administered oxygen to the boy.
The child was rushed to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, where he was treated and released.
"[It is] incredibly fortunate that the doctor... was in the right place at the right time," Sanfilippo said.
