AN 11-YEAR OLD BOY IS BEING CALLED A LOCAL HERO AFTER RESCUING A LITTLE GIRL FROM A CENTRAL COAST BEACH LAST WEEK.  5-YEAR OLD ALYSSA BOSTIC WAS PLAYING AT MARINA DUNES BEACH WHEN A SAND CAVE COLLAPSED ON HER.   AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES, THE GIRL WAS PULLED OUT OF THE DUNES BY THE BOY, CONNOR FITZ-GERALD, WHO STARTED TO PERFORM C-P-R ON HER.   AUTHORITIES SAY ALYSSA WAS UNCONSCIOUS AND NOT BREATHING. PARAMEDICS ARRIVED SHORTLY AFTERWARDS.  FITZGERALD SAYS HE HAS NO FORMAL C-P-R TRAINING AND CREDITS THE TV SHOW NCIS WITH TEACHING THE LIFE-SAVING TECHNIQUE.
