Is it teething time for your little one?

 

We all know just how important it is to be vigilant when around water with kids, something this video highlights once again.

 

A nine-year-old boy is being hailed a hero after he saved a toddler who was drowning in a pool in Florida, US.

 

As can be seen on the clip, the three-year-old runs into the pool unsupervised and gets into difficulty a few minutes later. 

 

Thankfully, the tot's nine-year-old cousin spotted her ans was able to pulled her out of the water. She was submerged for more than two minutes before anyone saw her. 

 

Breanna Moseley, who is not a member of the family, saw the cousins coming out of the water and immediately rushed to their aid.

 

Talking to WKMG, she said: “I turned around and he was holding a little child. She was just limp and not moving.”

 

The 18-year-old performed CPR on the toddler after learning it in school, and the youngster was airlifted to hospital. Thankfully, she has been discharged from hospital.

 

Not only does the story highlight the the importance of knowing how to perform CPR, it also highlights once again that drowning is silent and can happen in the blink of an eye.
