A Tyler Police officer's quick thinking may have saved the life of a 3-year old child.

Saturday afternoon, a birthday party was being held for the 3-year old boy on Rochester Way in Tyler, when he somehow ended up at the bottom of a swimming pool.

When he was pulled out of the water, the child was not breathing and was unresponsive.

Officer Jimmy Turner, who was off-duty and attending the party, used CPR to revive the boy.

The child was taken to a local hospital, where he was reportedly breathing on his own and talking. He was flown to Childrens Hospital in Dallas as a precaution.
