A seven-year-old boy is being hailed as a hero after he saved a drowning toddler. Massiah Browne was swimming in the pool at his apartment complex in Sacramento, California, when he noticed a three-year-old boy was sinking to the bottom of the pool.
Without hesitating, Browne swam down and pulled the boy out of the water.
Bystanders performed CPR as they waited for paramedics to show up. The young boy was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but was stabilized by the time the ambulance arrived.
“He always wants to help,” she said.
Massiah told KXTV that he doesn’t believe he’s a hero.
“But my mom does,” he told the news station.
Delvalle said that they have been in contact with the boy’s family and were relieved to hear that he will make a full recovery.
“It’s a miracle,” she said.
