A 10-year-old hero jumps into action when his mom has a seizure in the water while she’s swimming in this heart-stopping video. It's amazing how kids know just what to do in crisis situations!
Gavin Keeny and his mom were enjoying the last few moments of summer in the family pool, which the family's surveillance video captured. You can see Gavin’s mama Lori Keeny just out of the shot when Gavin dives into the pool like a well-trained lifeguard. His mom was having a seizure in the water.
Gavin gets to her as quickly as possible. He immediately hugs her and turns her face up right from the water as he begins swimming to the edge of the pool.
10-Year-Old Saves Mom From Drowning
Lori was having an epileptic seizure in the water. And Gavin instinctively knew he needed to get her face up and out of the water. Then Gavin's grandfather realized what was happening and rushed into the pool to pick up Lori. You can see in the video as Gavin transfers her to his grandpa, and the look on his face is sheer relief. He knew at that moment she was going to be okay.
Now Gavin is being publicly recognized as a hero. How incredible is that? He's only in the fifth grade, and he was given an award for saving his mother's life. But here's the twist. This wasn't the first time he saved his mother's life.
He had saved her once before when she was choking. We hope he continues to be strong, courageous, and resilient because he has certainly earned the title of being a "little hero."
Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
