"Miracle swimmer" girl shows the power of parental love! (VIDEO)

Rosanna Ogden is known as a "miracle swimmer."  Why? The now 2-year-old first learned how to swim only weeks after undergoing open heart surgery as an infant.

The British toddler first got her feet wet at 10 weeks old after having surgery to remove a potentially fatal heart tumor.  Doctors recommended exercise and activity to speed up the recovery so Ogden's parents took her to the pool and signed her up for swimming classes. What they didn't know is that she is a born swimmer!

At just 13-months-old, Ogden was swimming all by herself! Her skills even earned her the name "miracle underwater swimmer girl." And learning her way around a pool hasn't only been beneficial to her--during a charity, she raised around $1,000 for the British Heart Foundation by swimming 100 meters.
