A 1-year-old boy nearly drowned in a backyard swimming pool in Corona de Tucson Sunday afternoon. 

The family of the child took him to a Corona de Tucson fire station, 17411 S. Rustling Leaf Trail, shortly before 5 p.m. and said the boy had fallen into a swimming pool, said agency spokesman Todd Cupell. 

Paramedics attended to the boy, who was breathing on his own, and he was taken to University of Arizona Medical Center by ambulance, Cupell said. 

No other information was immediately available.
