A 12-year-old Florida boy is been hailed a hero after he saved a man by performing CPR he had learned from the show "Stranger Things."

The incident occurred in Wellington when 12-year-old Austen MacMillan's behavioral therapist, Jason Piquette began drowning in the pool.

Per reports, Austen and Piquette had been using a phone timer to see who would hold their breath the most underwater when things when tragedy struck: "Footage from the family's security cameras shows Piquette floating motionless face-down in the pool. Austen checked the timer, saw it had been five minutes and knew that was too long. Austen dove underwater to check on Piquette. Finding him unresponsive, Austen then pulled him from the deep end and set him face-up on the pool's shallow steps."

Although Austen tried to get help, no one was home, and moreover, he couldn't make a 911 call due to the phone screen being cracked.

Finally, the 12-year-old administered CPR on the unconscious Piquette which helped revive him as this excerpt explains: "Mimicking those chest compressions, the home video shows Austen hitting Piquette's chest and bringing him back to life."

Sometime later, Austen 's father arrived and was able to make the 911 call. Piquette was transported to the hospital's intensive-care unit where he was placed on 100% oxygen.
