Thankfully the child should be alright, but take a look at this pool, if you have a hard time seeing the bottom, probably a good idea to avoid it.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A hotel office manager is credited with saving a 14-year-old girl from drowning in a hotel pool Sunday afternoon.
Valerie Schlict, the Best Western Greenfield Inn front office manager in Allen Park, had only seconds to react when she saw a group of children screaming on a hotel surveillance video.
The 33-year-old Brownstown Township woman said based on the surveillance video, it appeared Tasia Holmes had been on an inflatable raft with her sister, India Holmes, and another child when the raft popped. Poolside lifesavers were able to pull India and the other child from the water, but Tasia had been shoved under.
"It was either stand there and watch or go in afterwards," said Schlict. "I couldn't live with myself if I didn't go in."
Schlict pushed Tasia above the water's surface.
"Since she was such dead weight, it was very hard to get her up to the top," said Schlict.
India helped Schlict perform CPR for two minutes before Tasia started to breathe.
Schlict said she was relived when Tasia's "eyes flew open and her arm went up and she started shaking."
Tasia Holmes was transported to Children's Hospital In Detroit and is expected to make a full recovery, according to doctors.
