When She Went Out For A Jog She Became A Hero. You’ll Never Guess How Many Lives She Saved

A Woman became an unlikely hero on Monday when she went out for a jog.

She just happened to be jogging around the city reservoir at just the right time to see a stroller with two kids on board roll down a slope into the reservoir pond.

Rebecca, who declined to give her last name, was in Brookline for the day for her father’s birthday. She was taking a jog near Brookline Reservoir when she saw the stroller heading for the edge.

The mothers had their backs turned to the stroller at the moment. Without hesitation, the former lifeguard took the plunge.

“By the time I got there the carriage was face down in the reservoir,” Rebecca told CBS Boston. “So I jumped in and flipped the carriage and the children were buckled in and at that point it was waterlogged so I couldn’t really take it out.”

Fortunately, Rebecca heard a welcome sound.

“As soon as I flipped it one of the little girls started crying, so I was like OK they weren’t in there for too long,” she told the station.
