The Topeka PD released this video from a rescue on Monday.
A police officer was in the area searching for people who were fighting, when he sees a small child near a pond. Suddenly, the 4-year-old goes in the water and looks to be in trouble, so officer Aaron Bulmer races over and jumps into the water to grab him.
It’s a good thing he acted so fast, they learned later that the child is autistic, and many children with autism are drawn to water..
The child was later reunited with a parent who had been out searching for him.
