Siblings Save Toddler From Drowning

KSAL StaffAugust 13, 2013

Two young siblings are credited with saving a toddler from drowning in an apartment pool in Topeka.

Six-year-old Crystal Canul and her 11-year-old brother, Josias, rushed to the pool Monday night after their mother spotted the 2-year-old struggling while looking out a window of their second-floor unit.

The mother wasn’t a strong swimmer, so she asked her children to help. Crystal jumped into the pool to rescue the 2-year-old. Meanwhile, Josias waited to pull the toddler from the water.

The brother and sister later received hugs from Topeka police Sgt. Steve Roth as he lauded their efforts. The toddler was returned to her parents after emergency personnel deemed her OK. Roth says the girl had wandered out of an apartment.
