An Army veteran saved a 6-year-old boy who nearly drowned while swimming in a pool at the Westgate Resort in Orlando, Florida. Watch the video below as Army veteran Carlos Mullen shares how his training saved the child's life when he quickly sprang into action and performed CPR on the 6-year-old boy.
The Army veteran and his fiancée were enjoying a vacation in Orlando at the Westgate Resort in their 3rd floor room when they heard screams from the pool area. People in the pool area were calling out for a lifeguard, but there was no lifeguard in sight.
Mullen quickly rushed downstairs to the pool to perform CPR on a 6-year-old boy who had just been pulled from the pool by his brothers.
As he told WOFL FOX 35 in Orlando...
“I was able to do what I had to do to get the child a heartbeat," Mullen said.
The Army veteran’s experience in high-stress situations had paid off.
"I looked in this kid's eyes and I've seen shock on a man's face before. This kid had that look," Mullen said.
