UPS Driver in Washington Prevents 7-Year Olds from drowning on Route


A UPS worker in Washington saved the life of a 7 year old boy who was in danger in Soap Lake’s pool. Fox 13 reported.

Around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) received a report of a child drowning and at the same time the UPS driver happened to be on the scene, KREM 2 reported.

The child was reportedly not breathing at the Smokiam Resort when UPS driver Brian Walters found her, jumped in the pool and took her out, Fox 13 reported.

“She was completely blue, unresponsive, not breathing, no pulse that I could find at the moment,”Walters said KREM 2. “We probably did CPR for about a minute and then she started puking up or coughing up water.”

Walters is also a volunteer firefighter, and he was formerly a reserve police officer. KREM 2 reported.

According to reports, the child was then flown to a nearby hospital to receive further treatment.

“We want to say thank you to the UPS driver for acting, performing CPR and saving this child’s life,” Officer Foreman states in a video posted to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office Facebook. “Hopefully, we’ll have more information on this child’s condition later.”
