Cops say a toddler would have drowned at a hotel in Park Ridge, N.J., if it wasn't for the quick actions of a good Samaritan.
Debbie Katcher saw the child floating head first in the water with his hands limp in the water so she jumped into action and gave the 20-month-old boy CPR.
Cops say the boy was tossed into the pool at the Marriott Hotel by his father, Peter Clark, 32, who was allegedly high on drugs.
After about 4 minutes of CPR, Debbie says the baby started breathing on his own. She says the tot was wearing a life jacket but it didn't keep his head and face above the water.
Police arrested Clark for endangering the welfare of a child and drug possession.
"He was incoherent, he was obviously highly intoxicated for several hours, barely knew what was going on," says Sgt. James Babcock of the Park Ridge Police Department.
A woman at Clark's home in Bogota refused to speak with us and called the police.
The toddler came home from Hackensack University Medical Center Monday night.
