Two members of a sequestered jury --  a pediatrician and a nurse -- and the deputies escorting them saved a 6-year-old girl from drowing in a hotel pool last week in Memphis.  Hearing screams for help from the girl's aunt, the jurors, Dr. Jara Best and Sheila Dalrymple, ran to help the girl who was floating face-down in the water.

The little girl was transported to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in critical condition, but recovered quickly and was released on Sunday. WREG has the story
