APACHE JUNCTION, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -A woman passing by a pool jumped in to save a 7-year-old autistic girl from drowning in Apache Junction on Sunday.
Zarah Ajmi was riding her bicycle when she saw the girl in a nightshirt scaling the 7-foot-tall pool fence around 8:30 a.m. near Superstition Boulevard and Idaho Road in Apache Junction. “I have three kids so I know how kids act in water.
I just knew I needed to go check and see. I had a feeling, go make sure she knows how to swim,” Ajmi said.
