A 9-year-old Arizona boy saved his little sister, drowning in a backyard pool. Tristin Saghin said he learned CPR by watching television.
Mesa Fire Department firefighter/paramedic, Captain Forrest Smith says Tristin Saghin saved his younger sister’s life when he rescued her after he found her floating in a swimming pool, not breathing. Tristin imitated CPR that he has seen on a movie, and successfully carried it out on his nearly dead sister. She was transported to Cardon Children’s Medical Center and is expected to have a complete recovery.
Tristin said he learned CPR from watching Blackhawk Down were there is a scene of CPR.
We’ve tried to turn this movie off a hundred times, and he watches these scenes over and over these scenes over and over. He dresses up like a medic and he runs around doing these things, and we always thought it was so silly, but you know what? … that silly movie that cost a few dollars? … saved our daughter’s life.
— Chris Saghin, Father of Tristin and Brook
The incident was the area’s third drowning call in two days.

Maricopa County has seen 28 drowning calls, 14 of which have been fatal since the beginning of the year.
