Emilie is the daughter of Mark and Lonnie Bay of Florissant, Mo. She attended a pool party with her grandmother at the Hazelwood Forest Apartments. She found a little girl, 2, floating face down in the swimming pool and immediately ran to tell a responsible adult. The little girl was lifted out of the pool and resuscitated within 30 to 45 seconds. Thanks to Emilie’s efforts, the life of 2-year-old Olivia was saved. Olivia is alive and well today.
