Eagan police Wednesday bestowed a now 12-year-old boy with a Life Saving Award for his efforts in saving a man from drowning at his apartment complex's poll.
The incident happened in December.
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.
