6 Year Old Saves Toddler from Drowning

Alexis Weeks, 6, of Central, Texas saved the life of a toddler who fell into a pool. She's been swimming for about two years and is very skilled:

But no one could have guessed that dive would save the life of a two-year-old girl sinking to the bottom of a pool. Alexis says she knew exactly what to do.

"I need to go get her," she said.

Without hesitation, Alexis says she dove in the pool and rescued the little girl.

"Well I went under water and got her on my knee and holded her," said Alexis.

ALSO: A few weeks ago, Tiffany asked readers if they could swim well enough to save the lives of their children. It's a good question.
