Near drowning at a Phoenix community pool

PHOENIX — There was a close call at a pool in Phoenix on Friday.

A five-year-old girl nearly drowned at a community pool near 4th Avenue and Bell.

Fire captain Larry Nunez said fire crews responded after the girl did not appear to be feeling well after being pulled from the pool.

“The child was in there probably less than two minutes,” Nunez said. “They took the child home. The child went home, did not appear to be feeling well, look well so they called 911.”

Nunez said to always watch children near water, and if anything does happen, do not wait to call 911.

“Watch kids around water, and obviously if something happens call (911) immediately, do not wait,” Nunez said.
