Teen Rescues Toddler Who Nearly Drowned In Swimming Pool
August 17, 2022
The fast actions of a 19-year-old in Abington, Massachusetts, helped save the life of a two-year-old boy.
Savennah Mendes-Rodrigues told the local news station she was studying at her house on Monday afternoon when she heard people screaming for help.
"I come out to the kitchen, and there's a little kid on the floor, and they were like, 'he fell in the pool'," she recalled.
Mendes-Rodrigues, certified in CPR, jumped into action while waiting for the paramedics to arrive.
"I was really calm actually, I started chest compressions while everyone was panicking in the background," she said.
When the paramedics arrived, they told Mendes-Rodrigues her actions may have saved the toddler.
"I wasn't thinking about anything, I was just kind of like in the moment, like 'oh my gosh,' and afterward, I was like, 'oh my god, oh I think I did just save him'," she told 7NEWS.
The child was taken to a hospital, according to a deputy fire chief. He is expected to recover, WCVB-TV reports.
