Lifeguard and others save two-year-old from drowning

(CNN) -

A lifeguard in California is thanked, but doesn't want to take full credit after helping to save a two-year-old's life.

The girl was playing in a lake when she suddenly fell over in the water and could not get up. 

That's when her mother pulled her out of the water and realized she wasn't breathing. Another mother ran and grabbed the lifeguard, who was able to perform CPR. 

The next day the family thanked the lifeguard who said he was thinking about her and was hoping she was okay. He says it truly was a team effort.

The little girl has her own life vest now and is doing okay.
