Massiah Browne was swimming at the apartment complex where he lives with his mom and brother when he said he saw something out of the ordinary: a boy with his mouth and eyes open at the bottom of the pool.

"I was just playing in the pool and then I saw a boy at the bottom of the pool," Massiah told Good Morning America. "And I went to go get him."

Massiah dove down, grabbed his arm, and pulled him to the surface. His 9-year-old relative helped pull the boy onto the pool deck, where adults came to help and then called 911.

Bystanders performed CPR on the boy until paramedics arrived.

"The child was transported in critical condition with advanced life support efforts provided by Sacramento firefighters," a spokesperson for the Sacramento Fire Department told ABC News.

Massiah's mother, Tiara Delvalle, said she is in touch with the mother of the 3-year-old boy, whom she reports is doing well.

"It's a miracle," Delvalle said of the boy's survival.
