Advaik Nandikotur, at 70 pounds, is credited with pulling a drowning man from the deep end of the pool. The man, who weighed 170 pounds, was unconscious and not breathing.

Nandikotur, who was 11 at the time, was the only person near the pool who could swim, so he jumped in.

The 34-year-old has now fully recovered.

Police detective Desiree Schroepfer was also recognized for pulling a suicidal 15-year-old to safety from the edge of a 10-story building in June of last year.
