Kyle 8 Sister Garden Pond, Kyle 8 sister garden pond-A hero schoolboy saved his wee sister from drowning after she fell in a garden pond. Little Sophia Mollan, five, plunged into the icy pond and banged her head. She couldn’t scream for help because the water covered her mouth. But quick-thinking brother Kyle was able to grab her flailing arm and haul her to safety from the pond in their garden in Dunfermline.
Relieved mum Lynn, 32, said Sophia could have drowned if Kyle had not acted so quickly. The mum-of-four said: “It doesn’t bear thinking about. “Kyle is eight but knew exactly what to do and didn’t panic. He had his wits about him.” Student nurse Lynn added: “That’s why we are so proud of him – he’s really got his head screwed on.” Kyle, Sophia and their three-year-old sister Mya had been playing under the watchful eye of dad Darren, 40.
He nipped into the house to change the nappy of 22-month-old Caleb after warning the children to stay well away from the pond.
But Sophia slid on slippery ground at the edge of the water. Thankfully Kyle spotted his terrified sister’s plight and ran to her aid after telling Mya to get their dad. Kyle, a primary four pupil at Pittencrieff Primary where Sophia is in primary one, said: “Dad said don’t go near the pond but Sophia went near the pond and slipped.
“When she slipped in I said, ‘Mya, go and get Daddy.’ Sophia’s hands were moving all over the place. Finally, I managed to grab her hand.” Darren said the incident should remind other parents about the dangers of having a pond. He said: “You visualise what happened and it’s absolutely horrible.” Darren and Lynn only moved into the rented home in December. They have consulted their landlord about having the pond covered up. Around five children die every year in garden pond drownings.
