Reports say several brothers from the Caramegee family, of Tucson, AZ, were swimming at their apartment's pool, when one of the older children noticed one of the younger ones at the bottom of the pool.
The older brother dove down and retrieved him. Yelling for help, the resident manager of the apartment complex, Ron Drumbore, who is CPR certified, immediately came to the 11-year-old's rescue.
The boy was transported to the hospital, but was alive and breathing on his own when he left, the credit for his life owed to the manager, who performed chest compression and mouth-to-mouth until emergency services arrived.
