6-Year-Old Saves Drowning Toddler At Marina

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

CROSBY (AP) — A six-year-old boy is credited with helping save a toddler who nearly drowned at a Houston-area marina.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Department says a 1-year-old boy on Saturday fell off a floating raft at the marina in Crosby, a town about 20 miles northeast of Houston.

Six-year-old K’Xavier McCullough told reporters that he saw the child floating in the water, picked him up and “brought him to the surface.”

After the toddler was brought to shore, a man performed CPR on the boy, who was later taken to a Houston hospital.

Officials say the toddler is expected to survive.
