A 17-year-old boy was found in a Phoenix pool on the afternoon of June 11, and rescue crews say he's fighting for his life.

Phoenix Fire crews responded near I-17 and Peoria Avenue to reports of a teen who was underwater for about 20 seconds before being pulled out of the pool by family members.

"The patient was transported in seriously critical condition to a nearby hospital for treatment," says Phoenix Fire Capt. Evan Gammage.
