Crews responded to a home near McClintock and Guadalupe around 3:30 p.m. on August 1. Firefighters were called after an 11-year-old girl was found by a family member at the bottom of the pool.

Family members got her out of the water and started CPR before paramedics arrived, according to the Tempe Fire Department.
