Medical Champion Marshal Davis saves his cousin from drowning

It was a summer evening perfect for swimming. Marshal Davis and his cousin Aaron Jewell were celebrating a graduation with fifty others. Little did Marshal know one of the dog days of summer would quickly turn into a day he and others will never forget.

"I heard somebody saying way to go Marshal, okay Marshal, that's great Marshal, look at what you did. I said what did he do? I looked around and he's bringing Aaron up out of the pool and swimming over to the nearest side.", says Marshal's grandmother Christine Pappas.

Turns out, 4-year-old Aaron had been walking near the pool, while Marshal and a few others were sitting in the hot tub when suddenly Aaron fell in.

This side where the little boy had fallen in was 9 feet deep and Marshal knew he was too young to be there. So I guess he just automatically just did it.

"We were just talking and we looked over the edge and he got on top of the ledge and he jumped in. I saw him go under and I went under." said Marshal. 

Now this all happened within seconds, but Marshal was taught by his troop leaders saving a life is just the thing to do. Marshal has been in boy scouts for 3-years. Just three weeks ago Marshal had received his swimming badge from his boy scout troop.

"We had to learn how to save our lives with a pair of jeans, we had to learn how to swim.," says Marshal. 

His grandmother proudly states, "They teach them things that boys don't even know they are learning like Marshal. He probably didn't even realize he was doing something as great as it was."

Aaron and his family are so thankful and can't seem to say thank you enough to Marshal.
