A man in Colorado, US saved a three-year-old girl’s life after he happened to come upon her lifeless body in a lake.

The 32-year-old man was walking at the Colorado Windsor Lake on Sunday when he felt something brush up against his leg in the waist-deep waters.

He told the Coloradoan:

“It felt like something you normally wouldn’t feel in the water. I did sort of a back kick to bring up whatever it was, and then I saw the bottom of a baby’s foot float up.”

Angelo Mondragon found toddler, Sitali Hernandez, and he immediately called 911.

“I grabbed her and carried her limp body to the shore. The girl was already blue. She wasn’t breathing.”

Two off-duty nurses helped give CPR, before being taken to hospital after being resuscitated.

“If I was not in that right spot at the right time, it could have been a search and rescue mission. As I told the little girl’s mom, when I saw the baby’s toes that became my baby.”
