A 9-year-old boy from Florida is winning praise online for pulling his father out of the water after he broke his neck in a diving accident.

Asaih and his father Josh Williams were at the Quietwater Beach on Saturday when Williams decided to take a final plunge from a dock into the Santa Rosa Sound.

However, the water turned out to be shallower than anticipated and his father emerged, taking longer than usual and on his abdomen.

Asaih soon jumped in to save his father from drowning and managed to turn him over, despite a 45-kilogram weight difference between the two.

The nine-year-old then tugged him to the shore before bystanders came in to help. Williams was transported to a hospital with a broken neck. He reportedly underwent fusion surgery on Monday.

Many lauded the boy for his timely intervention and daredevilry. Take a look at some of the reactions here:

Though Asaih doesn't have any formal training in swimming, he always plays a game in his head when he is diving with someone.

While talking to news agency AP, the nine-year-old said that he senses something wrong if a person doesn't emerge from the water within a set amount of time.
