Caught on camera: Teen saves 3-year-old from drowning in Florida pool

Surveillance camera at a public pool in Titusville, Fla., captured a scary moment June 3 when a three-year-old girl fell into the water and nearly drowned.

Luckily, a quick-thinking teen was able to pull the unconscious girl from the water and deliver the CPR that saved her life.

“Never in my mind did I think I’d be in a situation like that where I need to perform CPR on a child,” Breanna Moseley, 18, told WESH-2 News.

    Surveillance video from the Timber Trace apartments in Titusville shows the girl, whose name is being withheld, playing around the edges of the apartment complex’s pool.

    It’s not clear whether she slips or jumps in, but once in the water the girl quickly becomes distressed, frantically flailing her arms and kicking as she tries to stay above water.

    Amazingly, no one else in or nearby the pool notices for nearly two minutes, long enough for the child’s body to slip beneath the water.

    “You can see in the pool people are around this young girl and she goes under and they don’t even notice,” Amy Matthews, a spokesperson for the Titusville Police Department, told CBS News 6 in Orlando.

    But the child’s nine-year-old cousin did notice and pulled her unmoving body from the pool, whereupon Mosely immediately began to render first aid.

    “I saw that she wasn’t breathing, so first instinct was to mouth-to-mouth and just give her air,” Moseley told WESH-2 News.

    “She was able to cough up some water. Once I saw she was breathing, I was definitely relieved.”

    Paramedics transported the child to a local hospital as a precautionary measure, and Titusville police credited Mosely for helping save the girl’s life.

    “Breanna Moseley, 18, of Titusville, who was poolside and did not know the victim, began CPR on the child, who was lifeless and not breathing.” The department said in a press release.

    Local media is reporting that the child’s aunt, Jasmine Johnson, is facing charges of child neglect for allowing the toddler to play by the pool with only Johnson’s 14-year-old daughter and her friend supervising.

    The Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating the incident.
