Cable man saves drowning boy

SAN ANTONIO, TX (KENS/CNN) - A cable worker's quick actions are credited with saving the life of a young boy.

Cable technician Augustin Arreguin had just finished installing cable Tuesday when he heard people screaming.

Arreguin jumped over a fence and started CPR on the 7-year-old, who had just been pulled from the pool.

The youngster reminded him of his son.

"He's seven, my son's six. They're almost the same size," Arreguin said. "That's all I could picture when I looked at him."

The boy was breathing on his own when paramedics arrived.

He's expected to make a full recovery.
