EAST NAPLES, Fla. - A woman comes to the rescue of a drowning child at a community pool.
Janice Johnson was at the Whistler's Cove pool with her grandson on Thursday, when she heard screaming.
"She screamed out to me, my brother passed out," said Johnson.
Johnson looked down and saw six-year-old Stanley face down in the pool.
"Stanley was blue all over," said Johnson.
She dragged him out of the water and started performing cpr. Someone nearby called 911.
"I didn't know if he was alive or if he was dead," said Johnson.
But, Stanley survived. He's now recovering at a local hospital, all because of Johnson.
"We're just happy Stanley came back to us," said Johnson.
Now, Johnson and other residents at Whistler's Cove want the fire department to come teach cpr classes.
"We have to educate ourselves in cpr and other lifesaving techniques to protect our kids," said Johnson.
But she says she didn't do it alone.
"I was very afraid, but I had faith," said Johnson. "I never gave up, not one time."
