Most people should know how to swim because it is an important life skill. And in this situation, Massiah Browne showed everyone how important it is to learn to swim as soon as possible.
Messiah Browne, who is only 7 years old, has been swimming for almost half of his life. The pictures his family posts on their Instagram account show that the young boy really enjoys being in the water.
Messiah was at the pool at the WestLake Apartments in Sacramento when he noticed something strange. When he saw a child at the bottom of the pool, he ran to get help right away.
He told his aunt Savannah Martinborough, who is only 9 years old, what he had seen. She told Messiah right away to get the child out of the water. The 7-year-old jumped into the deep end of the pool as soon as he heard his aunt.
“He grabbed his arm and climbed back up with him,” her 9-year-old niece says. The 3-year-old had fallen into the pool and was sinking to the bottom, about to drown. The 7-year-old saved him. The two people then told the adults at the pool about the child, who were quick to help.
Adults who knew how to do CPR helped care for the child until the Sacramento Fire Department came to help.
By the time the child was taken to the hospital, he was breathing normally again.
Little Messiah Browne saved a life in the end, but he doesn’t think of himself as a hero for what he did. But he says that the boy’s mother does think of him as a hero. Messiah was very brave and helped save a life, so she should be proud of him.
The 9-year-old and 7-year-old have a message for people: when kids are in the pool, make sure they are comfortable and always being watched. This is great advice!
What a brave thing for a seven-year-old to do! Messiah Browne, you did a good job.
Tell everyone about what a brave thing Messiah Browne did so that everyone can applaud this brave little boy and give him hope for the future!
