Kansas police officer lauded for saving 4-year-old from pond

A four-year-old boy with autism who fell into a Kansas pond is alive thanks to a heroic police officer.

USA police are hailing an officer who jumped into a pond to save a drowning autistic child. At nearly exactly the same time the child fell into the water, Bulmer's cruiser approached and he witnessed the boy flailing around in the pond. Bulmer exits his vehicle and sprints toward the pond, where Elijah is flailing a few feet from the bank.

Bulmer said that God redirected his path that morning in order to intervene in the child's dire situation. As seen in the video, Bulmer starts running and jumps into the water and pulls the child out of the water.

The little boy fell into the water and Bulmer jumped into action.

Also, the curved display on the front of the devices makes it very hard to replace the front glass without destroying the display. They come with a radical bezel-less design with an "Infinity display" that covers nearly the entire front panel of the device.


Police officials said the child's parents had been looking for him but hadn't been able to find him.

The video shows the boy's head above the water and he cries when the officer takes hold of him.

The boy was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated and was later identified as being diagnosed with autism.

"That could have been my young one", Officer Aaron Bulmer said of the incident during a Wednesday news conference.
