Paramedics rushed an 18-month-old boy to an area hospital after he was found submerged in a backyard swimming pool.

We're told there was a party going on Monday night and somehow, the child found his way into the water.

Firefighters say bystanders performed CPR on the child until crews arrived at the home near 7th Avenue and Bell Road.

At last check, the toddler was breathing on his own.

The investigation is on-going.
