GLENDALE, AZ - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl is in critical condition Wednesday after she was found in a swimming pool in Glendale.
The incident happened around 12:30 p.m. near Northern and 109th avenues.
The girl’s mother noticed she was missing and searched their house, before finding the girl floating in the backyard pool face down, said Sgt. Brandon Jones with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
After calling 911, the girl’s mother and grandmother started performing CPR as directed by the fire department, Jones said.
The girl was awake and crying before being airlifted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Jones said.
She has since been listed in critical condition.
Deputies said they believe the girl crawled out of the house through the doggie door. The swimming pool does not have a fence around it.
It’s unclear how long the girl was in the pool.
