Boy, 11, Drags Unconscious Man From Bottom of Pool to Edge, Saving His Life: Police
Fifth-grader Advaik Nandikotkur was the only person at the Eagan pool who could swim on Sunday night.
When an 11-year-old boy saw a man sink below the surface of a pool at his Minnesota apartment complex, he didn't hesitate.
Fifth-grader Advaik Nandikotkur was the only person at the Eagan pool who could swim on Sunday night, according to KARE. He fearlessly leapt into the water and grabbed the 34-year-old man, dragging him to the ledge.
"Mom said to jump in. I said he's probably too heavy but I jumped in anyway," Advaik told the station.
At the edge of the pool, other people were able to pull the man out and revive him. He was taken to the hospital for treatment and later released.
Eagan Police Officer Aaron Machtemes told KARE that Advaik seems humble about being a hero.
"He did what he needed to do. And I think that's really cool that he's just like, 'Yep, I did it,'" Machtemes said.
