Lewiston Teen Saves Drowning Boy From The Androscoggin River

Source:Facebook

Andrew Bilodeau, 14, noticed bluish lips and a nose poking through the surface of the Androscoggin River in Lewiston. Andrew then went waist deep into the river and wrapped his arms around the seven year old boy and pulled him toward the riverbank.Bilodeau, tells the Lewiston Sun Journal, that he was ‘a little scared, a little panicked,’ as he thinks back to the events of July 3rd.

He dragged the boy’s limp body a couple of feet up the bank. Bilodeau’s father was on the other side of a chain link fence that Andrew and two of his friends slipped under to throw rocks in the river.

They managed to get the boy to Andrew’s father and one of the boy’s friends had arrived. They began to press of his chest and soon after the boy started to vomit water.

An ambulance arrived and took the boy to a local hospital and then to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he was treated and released.
