Sarasota, Florida -- A 3-year-old girl is recovering from a near-drowning incident after her life was saved thanks to the quick thinking of a 10-year-old neighbor.

Sarasota Police say on the evening of April 20, Alexander Castanon was swimming at his apartment complex pool on Signal Pointe Circle with his three-year-old neighbor Natalee and one of her parents. The three-year-old was wearing a flotation ring at the time the adult jumped out of the pool when a fire started in a nearby grill.

When the adult put the fire out, Alexander noticed Natalee was floating face down in the water. Alexander quickly pulled Natalee out and yelled for help. The adult ran over and started CPR and restored her breathing.

Natalee was Bayflighted to a nearby hospital. Police say she is doing fine now, thanks to Alexander.
