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.
