Life saver: 10-year-old out for first swim of the season saves 2-year-old at Patterson Lake
Ten-year-old Mackenzie Wilkinson managed to save a little boy from drowning on Tuesday, despite never having taken a formal swimming lesson in her life.

She snapped to action, grabbing her pool noodle and urging the young one to grab on.
