(WTHR) An Indianapolis woman is being hailed as a hero after saving a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old son from drowning.
It happened Wednesday around noon at an apartment complex on the city's south side where Jennifer Potter is the assistant manager.
Potter said she and a co-worker were in a golf cart driving by the complex pool when they heard a commotion and saw a child in the deep end. Potter sprung into action.
"I don't know how I did it," she said. "I just reacted and would hope anyone else would do the same as I did."
Potter, a 35-year-old mother of a 3-and-a-half-year-old son, said she jumped off the cart, and "took my shoes off while still running and just dove right into the pool and swam straight over to them and then realized there was a mother beneath the little boy."
