MESA, AZ - A toddler is in critical condition after the child got into the family pool while his aunt was sleeping, according to Mesa Fire Department officials.
Mesa firefighters responded to the drowning call involving a 1-year-old boy around 8:40 a.m. Tuesday at the home near Alma School and Main roads.
The child’s aunt called 911 after finding the child floating in the pool. She told Mesa fire officials that she fell asleep for 20 to 30 minutes and that the boy must have gotten outside through a doggie door.
Fire personnel performed CPR on the boy before he was transported to a local hospital. He is currently listed in extremely critical condition.
