9-year-old Georgia girl hospitalized after trying to save dad who drowned in pool

A 9-year-old girl who tried to save her father from drowning in a pool over the weekend was hospitalized in critical condition, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Authorities in Macon, Ga., were called to an apartment complex pool around noon Saturday after 42-year-old Roger Dewayne Anthony went underwater and didn't resurface.

Witnesses said Anthony's daughter, London, jumped into the pool to rescue her father but both began struggling in the water. According to a Facebook post from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, bystanders managed to drag the pair out of the pool, after which they attempted CPR while waiting for authorities.
