The boys played on the beach next to the house. Suddenly one of them groped a human hand in the sand.
On that day, eight-year-old Conner Fitz-Gerald from California, USA, went to Marina Dunes beach with his friends as usual. Children love to run among the dunes and build sand castles.
Choosing a place to play, Conner began to rake the sand with his hands. But suddenly his hand touched something soft, to the touch similar to a human body. The boy felt his heart beat with excitement and began to rake the sand even faster. Very soon, an eight-year-old boy looked at his find in horror - this was a little girl! Her mouth was filled with sand, she was not breathing. There were no adults around.
Surely most people in such a situation in horror would have rushed to run, calling for help.But the eight-year-old boy liked to watch TV shows about doctors and knew that sometimes only one minute separates life from death. He pulled the baby out of the pasca and began to give her an indirect heart massage - as shown on television.
And the girl began to breathe! Conner's friends at this time ran for help, and a couple of minutes later the ambulance arrived. The girl was taken to the hospital. Her name is Alyssa Bostic, she is only five years old, and she also lives near the beach. At the hospital, the girl completely recovered and quickly recovered. She could finally tell everyone what had happened, how she had been buried alive.
Baby played on the beach alone and decided to dig a cave. The cave was deep and Alissa climbed deeper and deeper. At some point, the sand vaults could not stand it and hit the child - she was buried alive. Fortunately, Conner and his friends found themselves in the same place almost immediately afterwards. If not for him, Alissa would be dead.
The whole district quickly learned about the brave boy, the journalists arrived. Conner's happy parents repeated again and again to the camera, as they are proud of the act of their son, who was not taken aback at a critical moment and saved the life of a little girl.
Conner and his family became news heroes (in English):
Children sometimes demonstrate real wonders of resourcefulness and courage, setting an example even for us adults. Fortunately, the boy turned out to be extremely observant and was able to quickly remember how the heroes of his favorite TV shows saved their lives. Perhaps now in his school even introduce a course in first aid. Such knowledge certainly does not hurt anyone.
