Four kids in Farmersville, Calif., are being called heroes after they saved the life of a toddler who had floated a mile down a fast-moving canal.

The boys were cooling off when they spotted an unmoving toddler going past them. At first, they thought it was a doll, until they got closer. The kids pulled the 2-and-a-half-year-old out, and adults began rescue efforts.

Little Alice Falk miraculously survived the near drowning. She was recovering at Kaweah Delta Hospital Tuesday night.

Family members say she is playing, talking and expected to make a full recovery.
