SOAP LAKE, WA– A UPS driver is being called a hero after he helped save a 7-year-old who was pulled from unresponsive from a pool.

The incident was reported at the Smokiam RV Resort on July 20th. 

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says Brian Walters was delivering packages nearby when he came up on the scene. 

Walters immediately sprang into action and gave the child CPR. Walters who is a volunteer firefighter and former reserve police officer told reporters that the child was 

 “completely blue, unresponsive, not breathing, no pulse that I could find at the moment.” 

He performed CPR on her for about a minute and the child began “puking or coughing up water,” Walters said. 

She was then treated by responding officers at the scene before being airlifted to an area hospital. 

“We want to say thank you to the UPS driver for acting, performing CPR, and saving this child’s life,” Officer Foreman states in a video posted to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook. “Hopefully, we’ll have more information on this child’s condition later.”
