LEHI -- Lehi Police Chief Chad Smith is being credited with saving the life of a 3-year-old boy at a public swimming pool in Monticello.
The Daily Herald of Provo reports Smith was playing with his grandchildren in the pool when Caden Young of Vernal was pulled from it on July 22.
The boy had not been breathing and had no heart beat for 10 to 15 minutes while in the water.
Smith, a former EMT, revived Caden with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The boy was taken to the hospital and released the next day in good health.
His mother, Lonni Young, says no one else at the pool knew what to do, and Caden calls Smith "Grandpa Chad My Hero."
The accident happened after Caden left the "kiddie" pool and entered deep water.
