9-year-old San Jose boy saves drowning toddler

A 9-year-old California boy has saved the life of a toddler found unconscious at the bottom of a San Jose apartment complex swimming pool.

The San Jose Mercury News ( http://bit.ly/nrdsQj) reports Ishaan Singh dove into the Keily Park Luxury Apartments pool on Monday and pulled the 3-year-old girl from the bottom. She was revived a short time later.

The girl had earlier been riding on the shoulders of her grandfather, who was also unconscious at the bottom of the pool. A woman dove in and brought him to the surface. He's hospitalized in serious condition.

Five days earlier at another San Jose apartment pool, neighbors saved a girl and her father from drowning.
