And it was all captured on video.
Little Allison from Texas, who learned to swim when she was 2 years old, realized something was wrong when her mother stopped moving in the deep section of the pool. That is when the little 5 year old hero dove into the pool and miraculously pulled her mother to the shallow section. She then got out of the pool and ran off to get help.
Her mother, Anderwald, who suffered a seizure in the pool, was taken to a hospital in Corpus Christi, 10 miles southwest of her home in Portland. At first, doctors weren’t sure that she’d make it and even worried she might have neurological damage.
When she woke up Saturday, Anderwald recalled, “I did not know where I was. They did not tell me (what happened) for a while,” according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.
As it turns out, she was saved just in the nick of time.
