    Heroic boy tells how he saved sister from drowning


    MESA, AZ - People are calling a 9-year-old boy a hero after he saved his baby sister’s life with CPR.

    According to Mesa Fire Department spokesman Capt. Forrest Smith, the girl fell into her grandmother’s swimming pool around 9 a.m. Sunday near Sossaman and Guadalupe roads.

    Smith said the girl’s mother found her floating in the pool and pulled her out. She was placed on the ground unconscious and not breathing. Her 9-year-old brother, Tristin Saghin started to perform CPR, saying he learned it from watching television

    I saw this on the news! How cool the child knew how to do CPR just from watching TV. Absolutely amazing! Also, how amazing this child didn't freeze up like the adults did and just went about taking care of what needed to be done. He did a wonderful job and is a fantastic example! I hope he knows how proud we all are!
