A New Jersey State Trooper on a family vacation in Florida performed life-saving CPR on a 7-year-old girl who was found face down in a swimming pool.
The agency posted on Facebook, "On Friday, August 23, Trooper I Charles Travis was near a resort swimming pool when he heard someone calling for help. Without hesitation, Tpr. Travis entered the pool, grabbed the seven-year-old girl, and carried her to the pool deck where began performing CPR."
After a few moments, the child coughed up water and regained consciousness. She was later transported to an area hospital where an examination revealed that she had suffered no injuries.
The post continued, "Trooper Travis, a former life guard, volunteer firefighter and NYPD officer, relied on his training and experience to make quick and decisive actions, which may have prevented a tragedy. Trooper Travis' actions have brought great credit and distinction upon the New Jersey State Police."
