Boy critical after being pulled from backyard pool
A 4-year-old boy was flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital after being found in a backyard pool, near 32nd Street and Mountain View.
An adult relative pulled the boy from the pool's deep end about 2:30 p.m. and attempted CPR.
"She pulled him out, was able to do CPR, knew CPR, child regained semi-consciousness and at that point firefighters arrived," said Phoenix Fire Capt. Larry Nunez.
The boy may have been underwater for up to 4 minutes. There was no fence around the pool, according to the Phoenix Fire Department. The house was grandfathered in, so it wasn't required to have a pool fence.
At last check, the 4-year-old was in critical but stable condition.
"There was an adult at the home that was watching him, we just don't know the circumstances surrounding what happened."
