There are a lot of rescuing stories, about people realizing something’s wrong and immediately going to save someone.
However, the hero of this life-saving story is very different from that of the other stories. Cesar Galeana is the one who rescued a toddler, and people are amazed by him because of this one peculiar thing about him.
He’s only 7-years-old.
What happened was remarkable –
One day, this boy from West Valley, Utah, was on his way to his cousin’s home to play video games, when he saw something terrifying.
There was a toddler who had fallen into a pool, and no one was there to save him.
Immediately, Cesar ran towards the pool.
Without hesitation, he got as close as he could to the water, and pulled the baby towards him.
When being interviewed by several local TV news stations, Cesar said that pulling him out was not easy at all. As you could imagine, the toddler was a bit heavy for him.
“I was worried, because I thought he was going to die. So I ran and saved him,” said Cesar in his interview.
“I’m like ‘What should I do? What should I do?”
“I ran, got the gate open, got him out, put him on the ground and told the office it was a drowning,” added Cesar.
Thankfully, within several minutes, officers and ambulance crews came running to help.
“First the firefighter, and then the cops, and then the ambulance,” recalled Cesar.
Officials reported that they are now trying to investigate how the toddler managed
crawl past the gate, and into the pool. Apparently, parents of this little 2-year-old did not know that their child had slipped away. The baby was in the pool for at least 4 minutes, which is why people are saying that it would not have survived if Cesar wasn’t there.
As soon as news reported about this unbelievable incident, everyone praised Cesar’s quick feet and selfless decision to help the 2-year-old.
In fact, the West Valley City Police Department applauded him on its Facebook page, entitling the post as, “Hail Cesar.”
I simply cannot believe this 7-year-old saved a toddler all by himself.
