GLENDALE, Ariz. - A 3-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a Glendale pool on Sunday night, fire officials said.
Reports of a drowning near Glendale and 89th avenues came in during the night of July 4. When crews arrived, they found a boy who had been pulled from the pool.
Captain Ashley Losch with the department said the boy made his way into a locked and fenced pool area while visiting the home with his family. There were about 20 adults and 12 children at the Fourth of July party, Losch said.
"It is unclear as to how long the child was in the water before being found by a party goer. He was immediately pulled from the water and CPR was started," Losch explained.
The boy was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition where he later died.
The Phoenix Fire Department also reported a newborn baby girl is in extremely critical condition on Sunday night after an incident at a hotel.
