PHOENIX — A three-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a Phoenix pool Wednesday evening.

Phoenix firefighters responded to a home around 4:45 p.m. near 19th Avenue and Bell Road after a child had been pulled from a swimming pool by a bystander.

Firefighters took over CPR from the bystanders and got the child into an ambulance while the boy was not breathing on his own.

The child was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and later died, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

It was not immediately known how long the child was in the pool or if the pool has a fence or not.

An investigation remains ongoing.
