Boys Rescue Toddler from Pool

Two boys from Amarillo are being hailed as heroes after rescuing a 2-year-old who fell into a swimming pool.

Gus Cabrera and Sam Hadded say the 2-year-old was playing with a ball, and when he tried to throw the ball into the pool, he lost his balance and fell in. Fortunately, the toddler was close to the edge. So, one of the boys pulled him to the steps, and the other pulled him out of the water.

The child's mother says she was gone less than a minute, and that's all it takes for something bad to happen.
