Heroes can come in all shapes and sizes, but it is rare to find a young child with the bravery, intuition and strength to save a life. However, a 7-year-old boy in Brazil is rightfully being hailed a hero after he noticed his toddler brother in a pool, jumped in and pulled the child to safety.
The incident, which happened in January but is now coming to light, was all captured on the home's surveillance cam. In it, you see a diaper-wearing pre-schooler make his way out of the house and poolside. He tries to touch the water but winds up falling in and doesn't surface. Seconds later, his brother, who was nearby drawing, leaps into the pool without a second thought, saves the child and gets him out of the water.
The boys' mom nor their aunt, who posted the video, heard anything. Towards the end of the clip, you can see a shocked adult being told the story by the children.
