Ten-year-old Jayla Dallis is being hailed as a hero after she helped save the life of her three-year-old sister Kali Dallis.
On May 15, Kali and her sister were swimming at The Savoy apartments in Chamblee, Georgia when the infant jumped into the shallow end of the pool in a green inner tube. The inner tube went sideways and Kali was turned upside down with her head beneath the water.
During her struggle, Kali was dislodged from the tube and was unable to tread water.
Kali’s sister, Jayla, had just gotten out of the water when she turned around and saw her sister thrashing about. Jayla ran and jumped into the water and pulled her sister’s unconscious body out.
“She was, like, heavy, so I had to pull her by her hair, then I grabbed her by her waist and pulled her up,” Jayla Dallis told WSAV 3.
