TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson Police Department officer who helped  resuscitate a toddler girl last week says he was just doing his job. 

TPD Officer Jeremy Hall responded to a call about a possible drowning at the Tucson Golf and Stuff last Friday.

Although he's only been on the force for one year, when he arrived to the scene Officer Hall says his training went into action by giving the toddler CPR with the help of a fellow officer.

A man first spotted the little girl floating in the pond at the miniature golf course after the girl's family discovered she had wandered off. The man actually jumped in and pulled her out.

As for Officer Hall, there might be some out there who would call him a hero, but he is just grateful it all worked out for the best saying, "I think that's a stretch. I think I was just doing my job and happened to be in the right place at the right time. You know we don't get a lot of victories in this job so when we get something like this, it's really good."

The little girl is still in the hospital and expected to survive.
