Merced girl, 12, helps in dramatic rescue of drowning boy

Nicole Kissel won't be grounded for not listening to her parents. "When you're saving someone's life, we don't have to ground you," said her mother, Mallisa Rainey. Or when you've been featured on ABC World News and Good Morning America. Kissel's family wasn't surprised when they heard the blonde-haired girl, who learned to swim before she could walk, helped save Charles "Dale" Ostrander's life last Friday in the choppy waters off the Long Beach peninsula in Washington state.
