PARADISE VALLEY, AZ — An 18-month-old girl is at a hospital after falling into a family swimming pool in Paradise Valley.

At about 10 a.m. Saturday, emergency crews were called to a home near Camelback Road and 44th Street for reports of a child who fell into a pool.

Family members initiated CPR. When firefighters took over the child was warm and moaning, officials said.

They began life-saving measures and rushed the girl to a hospital in extremely critical condition.
