PHOENIX – A 2-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition Monday after he was pulled from a backyard swimming pool in Phoenix, first responders said.

The Phoenix Fire Department said a family member found the toddler around 6 p.m. after he had been submerged for around two minutes at the home pool near 25th Avenue and Baseline Road.

The boy was breathing on his own when emergency crews took him to a children’s hospital, fire department officials said.

No other details were made available.

Last week, a West Valley toddler was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after he nearly drowned when a babysitter briefly left him and a 3-year-old sibling alone during a bath.

The El Mirage Police Department booked the woman watching the children on charges of child endangerment.

She had been watching three children, the oldest at 7, who had been dropped off at her home near El Mirage and Waddell roads.
