SAN JOSE, Calif. (Associated Press) -- A 9-year-old California boy has saved the life of a toddler found unconscious at the bottom of a San Jose apartment complex swimming pool.

The girl had earlier been riding on the shoulders of her grandfather, who was also unconscious at the bottom of the pool. A woman dove in and brought him to the surface. He's hospitalized in serious condition.

Five days earlier at another San Jose apartment pool, neighbors saved a girl and her father from drowning.
