Border Patrol Agent Saves Life of Drowning Child in Neighbor’s Swimming Pool

A quick-acting Border Patrol agent saved a drowning child who fell into a neighbor’s swimming pool over the weekend in McAllen, Tex.,  The Monitor reports.

Agent Carlos Cojelo was at his house when he heard commotion from a neighbor’s house. When he arrived, he saw a mother clutching her 3-year-old child, who was turning blue.

“I pressed on his stomach and water came out of his mouth,” Vasquez told The Monitor. “I pressed again and more came out. I was desperate I didn’t know what to do. That’s when he touched on my shoulder and told me that he knew what to do.”

Cojelo, a former EMT, resuscitated the child while they rushed to the hospital.
