PHOENIX - A 1-year-old boy has been rushed to a Valley hospital after he was pulled from a backyard pool in north Phoenix.
Phoenix Fire Department spokesman Hugh Chase said the boy was taken to Banner Thunderbird Hospital in extremely critical condition.
There was no immediate word on how long he had been in the water. The family was new to the area and there was no fence or barrier around the pool.
The little boy's 12-year-old brother found him floating in the pool and called his mother. The boy's mother pulled the toddler from the water and began CPR.
Officials say hospital personnel were able to establish a heartbeat on the boy, but he is still listed in extremely critical condition.
