COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Columbus police officer was taken by surprise when he met an Ohio man he saved from drowning nearly 20 years ago.

 

The Columbus Dispatch reports that both Christopher Jones and officer James Poole were overcome with emotion Friday when they met for the first time since the 1997 incident.

The 24-year-old Jones says he had commented on the police division's Facebook page after he saw a photo of Poole. Jones recognized his name as the officer who pulled him from a swimming pool when he was 5 years old.

 

He was then contacted by the division to organize a surprise reunion. Jones had his 5-year-old daughter with him when he met Poole.

 

Poole says he never thought he'd be thanked years later.
