A 2-year-old boy nearly drowned in a swimming pool Monday, the Tucson Fire Department said.

Shortly after 9 a.m., fire personnel were called to the 3100 block of North Sioux Avenue, near North Flowing Wells and West Fort Lowell roads, after the boy was pulled from an above-ground pool.

People at the residence performed CPR on the toddler before paramedics arrived.

The boy was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

Comments disabled.
