ZEELAND, Michigan, January 26. ACCORDING to an article in the Holland Sentinel, Jacob Heemstra of the Zeeland Swim Team saved his teammate Andrew Brookhouse from drowning.
Brookhouse, who suffered a seizure and lost consciousness during a practice, was at the bottom of the pool when Heemstra noticed something was wrong.
"I remember going down and bringing him to the surface. I don't remember the thought process," Heemstra told the Holland Sentinel. "I didn't think about it until afterwards. It was kind of like, ‘Whoa, I just did that.'"
According to the article, it was the first seizure suffered by Brookhouse. The near-drowning has also led to some lifestyle changes for Brookhouse, but he has since returned to the water.
