Police in Long An Province, southern Vietnam on Thursday commended two local police officers for their swift actions in rescuing a Chinese child from drowning in a swimming pool, thereby saving the child's life.

On January 25, Captain Nguyen Quoc Dat and police officer Le Duc Anh from Phuoc Dong Commune, Can Duoc District, Long An province found a resort employee attempting to rescue a child from drowning in the swimming pool on San Ho 2 Island in Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province. 

The two officers were visiting a tourist area on the island as part of a political course.

Without hesitation, they swiftly intervened, pulling the unconscious child to safety. 

Employing their first aid training, the officers administered life-saving measures, stabilizing the child before transferring him to a medical facility for further treatment. 

The child, a Chinese tourist about 10 years old, had been dining with his family at a nearby restaurant and had entered the pool unaccompanied, resulting in the near-tragic incident.
