First responders on vacation in Florida save 3-year-old from drowning in pool

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida -- First responders never take a day off, even on vacation.

A state trooper and a firefighter from New York jumped into action to save a young girl's life in Florida, and just in the nick of time.

Trooper Matthew Colwell and firefighter Jessica Campeta were at their hotel in Daytona Beach when they heard a woman scream.

They spotted a 3-year-old girl floating in the pool.

Campeta did not hesitate to jump right in after the child.

The young girl was taken to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
