Adriana Kuch, who tragically took her own life two days after being beaten by high school bullies, was seen in a new video saving the life of a little girl.
Adriana, 14, rushed to the aid of the child, who was struggling in a neighbor’s pool, according to the “Today” show, which posted the undated video clip.
She can be seen placing something on a chair before dashing into the pool and jumping in.
Adriana took her own life on Feb. 3 in her Berkeley Township home hours after she received a message mocking her for getting her “a— whooped,” her father has said.

As RTM previously reported:
The alarming video saw several students attacking the teen and hitting her with a water bottle while she walked with her boyfriend in the school hallway, local outlet Patch reported.
In the 20-second clip, a person is heard yelling: “That’s what you get, you stupid a— b—!” The attackers are seen punching, kicking, and pulling the girl’s hair while others laugh and record the assault, according to ABC 7.
“They think it’s fun to attack people and take videos and post them,” Adriana’s devastated dad, Michael Kuch, told the station. “Getting hit with a water bottle didn’t hurt Adriana, what hurt her was the embarrassment and humiliation, they just kept coming at her.”
“My daughter actually blacks out and they don’t call an ambulance, they take her to the nurse’s office,” Kuch told ABC 7, adding Adriana had “never been in a fight before, she’s 98 pounds, 5-2 and she loves everybody.”
The school district’s Superintendent Triantafillos Parlapanides told the news outlet police were not called after the attack, citing school policy.
