TEMPLE, Ga. — A video shows two police officers saving the life of a boy who was found unresponsive in a pool.

FOX5 reported that Temple Police Department Officers David Yates and Lt. James Hollowood responded to a 911 call they heard on their radio about an unresponsive 3-year-old.

The officers arrived before paramedics and performed CPR on the boy.

The footage shows Yates working to expel water from the boy’s lungs and the two performing CPR as a team.

Yates continued to help treat the boy after paramedics arrived, and he was later revived at the hospital, where he is recovering.

"I don't consider myself a hero. I just consider myself at the right time and place," Yates said.
