Although summer is winding down, Tucson drowning accidents remain a constant presence in the high temperatures, just like a near-fatal accident that occurred in the city late last month, according to AZ Star Net. The Mayor of Tucson recently proclaimed an 11-year-old girl a hero for rescuing her best friend from drowning in a neighbor’s swimming pool.
The girls were playing in the pool with other children, when the 10-year-old girl did not come out of the water and was pulled out by her friend. The victim spent four days in the hospital receiving treatment for her serious injuries. We are grateful the girl was rescued by her friend and hope that she is continuing to make great strides in her recovery.
