Alice Bleau, Charlotte Marceau and Marie Laberge didn't stop for a minute to consider their own safety. They couldn't let the man drown in the pool without trying to help.

A man who was swimming in the indoor pool of a Grande Allée apartment building is lucky to be alive today.

Apparently overcome by a heart attack, the 74-year-old sank below the surface in the pool. Fortunately, he was not alone. Three women, all well into their 80s, were there at the time and immediately came to his rescue.
