What could have been a tragic accident turned into an act of heroism after a toddler nearly drowned at a resort pool.

Maui fire crews said a 3-year-old girl was found floating in the pool at the Honua Kai Resort in Kaanapali around noon Saturday.

A registered nurse and firefighter paramedic, both visiting from California, pulled the girl from the pool and worked to resuscitate her until paramedics arrived.

The girl was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.

Fire officials say the men did exactly what was needed to save the girl's life.
