5-year-old saves mother from drowning in pool

TEXAS (WIVB) — A woman in Texas has her 5-year-old daughter to thank for saving her life. The woman nearly drowned in their backyard pool.

Tracy Anderwald is calling her daughter Allison a hero. It took incredible strength to do what she did.

Tracy was swimming in the family pool when she had a seizure. Allison realized something was wrong, so she dove into the water, and pulled her mom to the shallow end.

It took several tries but she didn’t give up.

Allison’s aunt, Tedra Hunt, said, “Allison was able to do that on her own, and so, it’s a miracle.”

Allison, who’s been swimming since she was two years old did not have much to say about what she did. She is just happy to be in her mom’s arms.
