First responders awarded for heroic rescue of 3-year-old in Grosse Ile

 A group of police officers and firefighters are now being called heroes for saving the life of a three-year-old girl who nearly drowned in a friend’s pool.

This week those nine first responders were awarded during a township board meeting.

It happened June 26, around 5 p.m., when the first EMT to respond was off duty as she was there at the house with her family.

The three-year-old girl is doing well thanks to the quick action of the people at the home.

“It was definitely one of those you never want to hear on the radio (of) unresponsive child, CPR in progress found in the pool,” said Grosse Ile Police Officer A.J. Benson.

Grosse Ile first responders raced to the home, but what they didn’t know was one of their own was already there.
