Chelsey Russell, a 35-year-old mother of two, was enjoying a family holiday trip on a houseboat on Lake Powell, a 186-mile-long lake along the Utah-Arizona border when a terrible accident happened. She heard screams and splashes and the next moment she discovered that her 2 year old son had fallen into water.
Without any hesitation, this brave Mom jumped into the lake to rescue her beloved boy, but she could not get him out. She held him above the water for five minutes while her relatives desperately tried to reach them. When they finally plucked them from the lake and to the shore, the little boy was given CPR, but unfortunately it was too late for his mother.
Chelsey made the ultimate sacrifice for her child and she is definitely a hero, but still it’s a very sad story. Watch the video to hear the full story.
