LOS ANGELES - PMPs with Isotech Pest Management saved an 11-month-old girl's life while out on a service call in Los Angeles, KTLA 5 reports.

According to Los Angeles police, the girl somehow fell into a bucket filled with water outside her home on May 21. Isotech employees Clint Czarnota, Gus James and Mike Mora, who were in a nearby building for a cockroach control call, heard a scream and ran to assist, according to the TV station.

Gus was able to perform CPR on the girl, after the girl's father had pulled her from the bucket. "The dad was karate chopping her back while she was upside down, trying to get water our of her," James told KTLA. "I could tell he did not know CPR or anything."
