A young boy was rushed to the hospital after he was pulled out of an apartment swimming pool. Eyewitnesses say the boy and some other children were around the pool at the Glendale Park Apartments on Sapling Way and Braeswood when he fell in. A man saw the boy at the bottom of the pool then rushed in to rescue him. He knew he had to do something.

"I said, 'Oh Lord' and then I just jumped in, shoes and all," said good Samaritan Darrel Walker.

The man performed CPR on the boy and got him breathing again. The boy is recovering right now and expected to be OK.
