Look: Andre Drummond Saves Son from Drowning

Former Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond shares rescue video of his son.

A parent's worst nightmare is something unforeseen happening that injures or significantly harms a family member. 

Luckily for NBA star Andre Drummond, his quick thinking and reaction prevented a tragic situation from occurring. 

On Thursday afternoon, the former Detroit Pistons center shared a video on social media of his son inadvertently entering a pool, much to the dismay of another male and female nearby. 

Almost instantly, Drummond is seen diving in, prior to any serious harm occurring to his young son. 

"Not all heroes wear capes. A parents worst nightmare ..... Feat my son and I. No one was harmed in this video," Drummond shared. 

Drummond then took his son over to another person, who successfully got the young child out of the water.
