A normal day at the pool turned into a daring rescue when a boy and his mother jumped into action to save a toddler’s life.

Surveillance video shows children jumping, swimming and playing in the pool at Lakes at San Marcos Apartments in Tallahassee, Florida, last Saturday evening.

But no one appeared to notice as a 3-year-old boy among them began struggling in the water and started to sink below the surface.

Eventually, Colbi Heard, 9, saw the boy and swam over to help. Colbi, who has autism, picked up the tot and brought him to the closest adult.

“I just wished that he came back up, ’cause it was just a sad moment,” Colbi said.

The boy was plucked out of the water and a crowd gathered, with several people around the pool calling for help.

Running from the other side of the pool was Colbi’s mother, Severia, who is a nurse and trained in CPR.

“I dropped everything,” she said.
