An off-duty Chicago police officer heroically saved a young boy from a
drowning accident. According to the authorities, a young boy was found drowning during a
suburban pool party on Saturday. The boy was in full cardiac arrest when
he was pulled from the waters. An off-duty Chicago police officer was
attending the party and pulled the boy from the bottom of the pool. The

again with CPR. The emergency responders from the Orland Fire Protection
District were called to a house located on Steeplechase Parkway in Orland
Park at around 6 p.m. According to officials, the boys was breathing and
conscious when they arrived thanks to the off-duty officer. The boy was
treated at Silver Cross Hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.
