LINCOLN (AP) — An off-duty Lincoln fire captain revived a 6-year-old after a woman jumped into a motel pool and rescued the little girl.
Lincoln television station KLKN reported that the incident happened during a birthday party at the AmericInn in north Lincoln on Saturday afternoon.
One of the partygoers’ moms saw the girl on the pool bottom and jumped in. LeAnn Holexa said she began yelling for Lincoln Fire Capt. Guy Pinkman when she and the girl surfaced. Pinkman’s son was at the party.
Pinkman said the girl didn’t have a pulse, but he soon revived her with CPR. The girl was taken to a hospital and she was expected to recover from her ordeal.
