You can hear the panic in the 911 called from the boy's father.
"We have a kid who fell in the pool - is he out- is he out of the pool now- he's out," said Michael Ain.
Ain had just pulled into the drive after work...when his daughter frantically ran out and told him to call 911.
"She told me that charlie our son.our 2year-old fell in the pool," Ain said.
On the other end of the line that day was Dunn.
Dunn told Michael to take over and calmly and clearly walked him through life-saving CPR.
The call lasted four minutes.
It was clear with Dunn's instruction, Michael was breathing life into his little boy.
As emergency crews pulled up to the scene, little Charlie was whimpering and wheezing.
