A Texas mother Tanah Zuniga, of Fort Worth, said that she was in the kitchen talking with her sister, Karly James, last Monday when her son Elijah and his two-year-old cousin Jaelyn walked into the backyard.
Tanah said that she put them down to sleep but was not aware of that they had gotten up, unlocked the back door and went outside.
The video shows that Jaelyn climbs a small ladder and tries to reach the family’s pool and 17-months-old Elijah follows behind him and accidentally falls in the pool.
Jaelyn tries to take out Elijah from the pool but he can’t get him out of the pool. Then he climbs out of the pool and walks back into the house. Tanah said when she and her sister saw that Jaelyn was soaking wet they asked him what happened. The toddler pointed to the back door and said, ‘Elijah’.
According to Tanah, her son was starting to turn blue and she knew he ‘had no life in him’.
‘’I knew the only one that could change that was God and I prayed I prayed and with authority begged like I had never begged before for him to bring my baby back I then Got the phone and called 911 and ran back,’ she posted on Facebook.
‘Right as I heard the operator start talking, my baby showed signs of life.’’
Fortunately, the little boy is fine and Tanah said when she watched the video clip she realized that Elijah had been underwater for over five minutes before she pulled him out.
‘’So to say God is good is such an understatement after today… today was one of the worst days of my life,’ Zuniga posted.’’
‘’Elijah is Alive and breathing and crying and saying, mama, something I thought I would never hear again after 8 min of my son not breathing. God brought him back to us and I can’t help but to Praise him and give him all the glory.’’
