Neveah Reynolds, a 4-year-old from LaFollate, Tennessee is hailed as a hero after saving her 2-year-old sister, Kazmirah, from drowning in a pond.

The girls' mother, Nikole, told MyVLT News that Neveah has been fascinated with the neighborhood pond ever since her dad told her that kissing the pond frogs might turn them into Prince Charming.

So on Sunday afternoon, the two were playing "fairy tales" -- cruising in the Barbie car and looking for Prince Charming when Neveah turned her back for just a second. When she turned back, "my sister fell in the middle right where the frogs live," she told WBIR.

Nikole heard screaming through the security monitor she uses to keep tabs on the girls and went outside panicked. When she found the girls, 2-year-old Kazmirah was soaked, but otherwise doing fine. Neveah had grabbed a stick to pull her sister out of the water.

Now neither of the girls are allowed to play near the pond and must put their quest for Prince Charming on hold.
During the interview with WBIR, with arms wide open, Neveah said, "I love my sister THIS much."
