TROUP COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - A pair of kids from Troup County saved their younger brother of one of them from drowning in a pool earlier this week.

The trio were swimming in a private pool when 3-year-old Duke Pike fell into the pool.

7-year-old Brantley Pike saw him underwater and pulled him above the water where 7-year-old Caleigh Thomas, Duke's sister, was able to hold his head above water until an adult could pull him out.

By the time he had been pulled out of the water, Duke was blue in the face and was not coherent.

Duke was transported to Piedmont Columbus Regional and after an overnight stay, Duke was released and is doing well.

Great job, Brantley and Caleigh!
