An unknown woman saved a 3-year-old boy who was found unresponsive in the Willoughby Station pool. 

Three-year-old Jack Fly was found unresponsive floating face up in the deep end at the pool. His father James Fly, along with the boy’s mother Piper, got the boy on the ledge of the pool. The parents yelled for anyone to help perform CPR on their child, and an unidentified woman in a pink shirt showed up and started CPR.
