At just six years old, one Louisiana boy is being hailed a hero for what he did when he discovered his two younger twin cousins face down in the pool after a family party.
After a family party, first-grade student Branson Lee went outside to look for his two-year-old brother since the door to the backyard had been left open. After spotting his baby brother, Branson realized his two-year-old twin cousins were in the pool and appeared to be drowning.
“My nephew happened to be walking outside because his little brother, who is the same age as my boys, was wandering outside too,” said Jeannie Kelley, the twins’ mom. “He saw his brother and grabbed him, and that is when he saw my babies. And he ran outside and grabbed them and pulled them up out of the pool and started yelling for us.”
“He said he just dove in,” said Courtney Lee, Branson’s mom. “All he knew is he had to try to save them … It was a miraculous thing to know that at 6 years old he didn’t just scream and run away. He didn’t just ignore it or stand there in shock. He just immediately acted and allowed God to do the rest.”
Branson pulled Kaden and Isaac out of the pool and started chest compressions. “They were completely gone,” Kelley said. “There was no life left in them. They were blue. They were limp. There was no heartbeat. There was nothing.” Their father, Steven Kelley, took over CPR and, miraculously, both boys started breathing again soon after.
First responders rushed Kaden and Isaac to the hospital, and doctors were stunned that they showed no signs of brain damage. “The next morning, they were just like nothing had ever happened,” Kelley said. “They were wanting to play, and they pulled their IVs out. They took their oxygen off themselves.”
“It was so amazing how everything came together, because if one thing had changed — other than the door being locked like it should have — if anything had changed, who knows what the outcome would have been. Everything just lined up perfect. Everyone just had their place whether they were praying or alerting us. It was amazing.”
