11-year-old boy found a 5-year-old girl buried inside the sand dunes - saved her life using a trick he learned from TV
11 year old Connor Fitzgerald played outside with friends one day in the sand dunes in California, United States.
The boy did what most children of his age do: dug in the sand to see how deep it would be. That was the moment he stumbling upon a startling discovery: a little girl was buried alive under the sand.
Without wasting time, Connor acted at top speed. He was in a race against the clock, and Connor had no intention of losing.
The 11-year-old boy began to dig nonstop to expose the 5-year-old girl, who had no life signs. He began to dig around her head before clearing enough sand to pull her out.
As soon as the girl was out, Connor immediately began doing resuscitation - which he learned to do from watching television.
It didn't took long before the girl came back to life.
The 5-year-old girl, Alyssa Bostic, was playing on the beach when a sand cave above her suddenly collapsed. She was trapped for a few minutes, unable to move or breathe.
While Conor was busy saving her life, adults arrived and immediately called an ambulance. The girl had escaped a tragic fate and was now fully recovered - all thanks to Connor's quick response.
"I feel good", the girl said.
Conor's father is proud of his son who saved the girl's life by thinking and acting fast.
"I'm glad he was able to stop for a moment and think, 'Well, wait, something's happening here, there's no adults here, I know they're at least 400 meters away, I've got to do something'", said Tim, Connor's father.

A few minutes can be the difference between life and death. Luckily, Connor acted quickly and efficiently and saved Alyssa's life. Please share if you also think he's a hero who deserves the honor of the world!
