12 yr old Boy saves Toddler from Drowning at Days Inn pool in Mt. Pleasant


MT. PLEASANT, MI – On Tuesday, July 11th 2017, at 5:06pm, the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a 3-year-old that had fallen into a pool and was unresponsive.

Just prior to deputies arriving at the Days Inn hotel, located at 5770 East Pickard Road, Isabella County Central Dispatch advised that the toddler was breathing and crying.




Deputies determined that the toddler had wondered into the pool area and from the video of that area it showed that the toddler slipped on the steps in the pool and went under the water. The child was under the water for approximately two minutes before a 12-year-old boy from out of town walked in and saw the toddler under the water.  That 12-year-old boy has been identified as Brayden Armstrong.

Brayden Armstrong immediately removed the child and with the help from a brother carried him into the hallway and called for adult help. CPR was performed by the mother of the toddler for about one minute and the child regained consciousness.

The toddler was familiar with the pool and hotel as the parents both work there. The pool area is open during the daytime hours.

The Isabella County Sheriff’s Office will be working on contacting the 12-year-old hero in this case and will hopefully be following up with his information and appropriate recognition.
