The Good News Is... Trooper saves girl's life

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Jack Dixon wasn't wearing his uniform last Sunday, he was swimming with his family at the neighborhood pool.

When Dixon heard screams he immediately knew something was wrong.

4 year old Abby Thompson had sunk to the bottom of the 5 foot deep pool. When the girl's father pulled her out, her lips were blue and she had no pulse.

Trooper Dixon and another woman who's a registered nurse started performing CPR on the girl. Within seconds, Abby was breathing and coughing.

Paramedics rushed her to the hospital but only for observation. Abby is fine and doctors say she has no lasting effects from the experience.

Trooper Dixon doesn't call himself a hero, just a guy who was in the right place at the right time.
