Sheriff: Michigan 12-Year-Old Rescues Toddler From Pool

UNION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ/AP) – A sheriff says a 12-year-old Michigan boy rescued a toddler who slipped and fell into a pool.

Isabella County Sheriff Mike Main says Brayden Armstrong of Kent City went to the pool at a Days Inn and Suites in Union Township to fetch some clothes Tuesday afternoon when he noticed a 3-year-old boy underwater. Brayden pulled him out and carried him to a hallway, where the toddler’s mother performed CPR until the child regained consciousness.

He was breathing and crying when deputies arrived and is currently still hospitalized.

Main says the toddler was underwater for about 2 minutes. He says the toddler’s parents work at the hotel.

Brayden was visiting a Central Michigan University wrestling camp. He tells the Saginaw News, “If there’s ever any trouble, you just have to act in a good way.”
