EL MIRAGE, AZ - Police say a 1-year-old boy is in critical condition after a near-drowning Thursday afternoon in El Mirage.
Kim Walden with El Mirage police said the boy was home with his grandmother in the backyard near Cactus and El Mirage roads.
The grandmother went into the house to check on something on the stove and came back outside to find the boy face down in the swimming pool, Walden said.
He had a pulse and was spitting up water, Walden said.
Air15 video showed crews airlifting the boy to a nearby hospital.
There was a stroller in the pool, but there's no word on why that was there.
Walden said the circumstances surrounding this incident are under investigation.
