“I’ve had a lot of moments with dad, including happy ones, sad ones, and furious ones, but I didn’t want this to be the last,” Bridon Hassig said of his father. “I didn’t want this to be the last.”
After preventing their father from drowning in the pool in their backyard in Alabama, two brothers are being praised for their bravery and heroism.
On June 14, Bridon and Christian Hassig, both age 10, and their friend Sam Ebert, age 11, went to their father’s rescue while he was performing underwater breathing exercises in their pool. Sam Ebert was the oldest of the three boys.
Christian relayed to WBRC that he generally gives the impression that he is meditating. “Before he calmly laid on his side, I noticed that he was furiously trembling. ”
Because I was wearing goggles, I was able to observe that the color of his face was changing to a very light shade of blue. I let Bridon know that my father was in the hospital.
Bridon continued, “Sam and I dove into the water together, and after we landed, I grabbed one of his shoulders, while Sam grabbed the other.” Simple, we brought him up the stairs on our backs.
Bridon disclosed during his appearance on the TODAY show that he administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on Brad after bringing him to the surface, imitating a scene from the 1993 film The Sandlot.
Despite the fact that he lacked training, Bridon conducted CPR on Brad.
In addition, Christian was able to aid by stopping a passing driver who then dialed the emergency number.
On Wednesday, Brad provided the following description to TODAY: “I went from serenity to getting hammered on the deck of the pool, and then it was anarchy, and everyone was everywhere.”
They were members of the emergency response team. I heard, ‘Daddy, Daddy. Daddy, could you please come back? You must be OK.’ It was completely ridiculous.
According to WBRC, Brad was sent to a nearby hospital where he stayed for one day before being released.
He shared with the TV channel that he is “extremely proud” of his sons and will be “forever thankful” to them for saving his life. He also expressed his gratitude to his sons for their actions.
“Physically, there’s no way they should have been able to lift a 185-pound man out of the water like that and know and execute what they did so rapidly and brilliantly,” Brad said in an interview with TODAY.
“There was no shortage of motion on their part to sprint as swiftly as they did. There is evidence of God’s handiwork in every aspect of creation.
Nonetheless, Bridon reported that he had come to the conclusion that he had to try to preserve his father’s life.
He said, “I’ve had happy times, sad times, and angry times with him, but I don’t want this to be the last moment.” “I don’t want this to be the last moment.”
A post about the incident was also published on Lori Hassig’s Facebook page a month ago. She is Brad Hassig’s wife.
She thanked God in the letter, saying, “Thank you, those three lads, for having the courage to save my husband.” You will always be remembered as our greatest heroes.
