Agent gives CPR to four-year-old pulled from pool

In the new logo that emblazons the front of the T-shirts often worn by the few employees of Rosenhaus Sports Representation, the "S" is large and exaggerated, reminiscent of the famous crest worn by Superman.

On Tuesday afternoon, for one imperiled toddler, NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus, who collects superhero figurines as a hobby, became a real-life Superman.

Orange County (Fla.) Police confirmed that Rosenhaus, acting quickly in a moment of crisis, saved the life of four-year-old Maurice Hill, who had essentially drowned in the pool at the Grand Floridian Hotel in Orlando. Rosenhaus administered CPR to Hill, who had no pulse when he was yanked from the pool, until paramedics arrived and took over the treatment of the youngster.

"He basically brought [Hill] back," said Cpl. Carlos Torres, public information officer for the Orange County Police Department. "The kid was gone and [Rosenhaus] saved a life. It's legitimate. Who knows how it would have turned out had he not been around? The guy was a hero today."

Said Cpl. Bob Leben, the deputy who commenced the investigation of the incident: "[Rosenhaus] certainly stepped up."

Hill was transported to Celebration Hospital, where police said he was listed in stable condition. Hospital officials did not immediately return messages, nor could the Hill family be reached. A spokesperson at the hotel also confirmed the events.

Rosenhaus was in Orlando for an appearance at the ESPN Club and to meet with some of his clients. He took a short break from business to honor a promise he had made, to take his girlfriend to the pool, when the incident occurred.

"When I was in high school, I was a lifeguard, and had learned CPR," Rosenhaus said. "In a situation like that, instincts kind of take over, I think. Let me tell you, this is the happiest day of my life. To save a little boy like that, who has his whole life in front of him, it's incredibly gratifying."

I can't hate someone as a person when they do something like this.

Though I can still hate his way of screwing teams over.

Drew doesn't even have to go after players now.
They come to him :cool:
Daddy likes his money sense
Momma loves the hero story.

Looks like he might have to change his nickname from "the shark."

Sure you can still hate him. Knowing Rosenhaus he just saved that particular toddler because the demon he sold his soul to tipped him off that this kid was going to be a Hall of Fame QB someday. Also while giving him CPR he sucked the kids soul out. Rosenhaus just needs six more of them to get the necessary mystical seven souls and become all powerful in this dimension. If he does that then his reign will last a thousand years and he'll amass a fortune totalling the combined earnings of every first round draft pick in the history of football.

Hate is a wasted emotion. It only hurts the person holding it. You don't think Rodenthaus cares if people hate him do you. Anyway I commend the live-saving action.

I don't think you can fault the guy for being good at his job...getting as much money as he can for his clients. His tactics are certainly questionable but it's hard to argue with some of his logic ("Why is is ludicrous for a player to hold out if he outperforms his contract yet it's okay for the owners to cut players at any time?").

But when you do something like this (saving the life of a 4-year old boy) and then consider the trickle down effect (I can only imagine how grateful I'd have been if it were my kid), then he gets a pardon in my book.

I guess even the Devil does good deeds from time to time.

*This just in----Maruice Hill (who was saved by Rosenhaus on Tuesday) has opted not to return to T-ball practice becuase of lack of playing time at shotstop. Until a deal can be struck with the YMCA coach and new agent Rosenhaus, Maruice will not be returning for this weekends game against Gilston Elementary School.*

Well said. I totally concur with that thought.
