Scary moments on Thursday night after a teen nearly drowned at a city pool. Along with lifeguards, another teen helped rescue him from the water and he is expected to be fine.
"I hear the lifeguard blowing the whistle and jumping in," described Jake Schneider.
Schneider and his friend Brandon Malick watched as the lifeguard at Hitchcock pool tried to save the 13-year-old who was unconscious at the bottom of the pool.
"She kept on going under water and saying 'I can't find him, I can't find him' so I dove under water and I saw him directly on the bottom and I just started swimming to the bottom. Once I got to him, I just threw him on my shoulders and pushed up as hard as I can," said Schneider.
Schneider, with the help of the lifeguards, got the teen out.
"It was really dramatic," explained Malick, "Like, it was like shocking to see someone like that. I wouldn't want to see somebody die."
Fortunately the teenage boy is going to be ok. Malick is glad for that and even more glad his friend, Jake, decided to lend a helping hand.
"I consider him as a hero," he said.
Schneider doesn't see himself as a hero, he says he did what he had to do; what he hopes anyone would do.
"Adrenaline kicked in and I just started swimming."
The 13-year-old from Omaha was swimming with his 2 brothers. Police say he had indicated he was not a strong swimmer. He jumped off the low diving board and never came up from under water.
He was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center as a precaution.
