Channel Seven’s Triple Zero Heroes has its first true-life success story, after just one episode.
NSW Police say a 10-year-old boy has saved his sister from drowning using CPR skills he learned from watching the Seven show.
Officers say the three-year-old girl was swimming with two other girls in a backyard pool at Bilambil yesterday afternoon when her brother found her face up in the water and not breathing.
The 10-year-old dragged his sister to the side of the pool and resuscitated her.
The show’s first episode last week included a segment about a three-year-old boy being pulled unconscious from a pool.
The girl has been taken to Tweed Heads Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Officers have praised the boy’s efforts and will be recommending him for commendation.
Triple Zero Heroes returns at 8pm this Sunday night on Seven.
