Heroes are always heroes, even when they are off the clock. Brian Wilson, a police officer from Columbus, Ohio, proved exactly that by saving the life of a 2-year-old girl.

If it wasn't for Wilson, who was nearby at the right place and the right time, Carmella Giederman would have drowned in a pool at a friend's home, where she fell in.

Mary Giederman and her boyfriend, Stephen Lopez, recently moved to Columbus, so they are staying at a friend's house until they can find a place of their own.

EVERY PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE

It all started when Mary and Carmella got home from a grocery run. The mother opened the door so their dog could go outside and, in a matter of minutes, the whole house went silent. She recalled:

"When your kid gets quiet, it's like, oh, what are they doing, they're into something. Normally it takes me a minute to realize it, but something kicked in right away."

Mary went back and noticed that the door she had opened for the dog wasn't closed all the way, so she went outside and was shocked to see her little girl floating in the pool.

She immediately jumped in and rescued her, laying her carefully on the deck. However, Carmella wasn't breathing and Mary didn't know how to perform CPR.

ON THE BRINK OF DEATH

Her only instinct was to scream as loud as she could for help. Several neighbors called 911 after hearing the screams but Wilson ran as fast as possible towards the house, where he saw Carmella turning blue.

Making use of his training, the off-duty officer tried to bring Carmella back while Mary prayed next to him. Eventually, the girl vomited and gasped for air. Wilson was relieved but later said:

"I was definitely worried. I mean, I've done CPR a few times in my career. That was the first time I've done it on a child. And quite honestly, just the way she looked, the way she felt, you know, she was very limp."

The emergency services arrived shortly after and rushed the child to the nearest hospital, where she stayed for a few days before being given the green light to go home.

Mary shared that she felt helpless and as if she had failed her daughter because, as a mother, she was supposed to protect her. Still, she said that she and Stephen will forever be grateful to Wilson.

HEROES EVERYWHERE

Despite being considered a hero, Wilson refuses to see himself as one, adding that anyone with the ability to help someone should be a decent enough person to do it.

Like Wilson, thousands of police officers go above and beyond for others, be it by rescuing a trapped child from under a crashed vehicle, saving a newborn from choking, or even help deliver a baby during a snowstorm.
