SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say two Sarasota police officers helped save an infant from drowning in a backyard swimming pool.
Spokesman Paul Sutton says officers Kurt Dever and Carmen Woods arrived at the home Tuesday as the father was pulling the 11-month-old boy from the pool.
The baby was unconscious and not breathing when the officers got to the home. Sutton says they started performing CPR and the child spit up water and began breathing.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports the officers drove the parents and the child to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he is expected to make a full recovery.
The child's name was not released and further details weren't immediately available.
Sutton says the baby is going to have a great story to tell someday.
