Avondale boy hospitalized after nearly drowning

Posted: Updated:
AVONDALE, Ariz. -

A 4-year-old child is in critical condition after he's found in an Avondale pool.

Police responded to a home near 107th Ave and Lower Buckeye Monday afternoon. The boy had not been seen for 3 to 5 minutes, and a 10-year-old relative ended up seeing him at the bottom of the pool.

She removed the boy from the pool, and the boy's mother performed CPR.

It's not clear how long he was underwater, but he was breathing and responsive when paramedics took him by ground to Phoenix Children's Hospital.

At last check, the boy was in critical condition.

The investigation is ongoing.
