A 2-year-old boy was taken to the hospital after being pulled from a pool at a Chandler home Thursday afternoon.
Batallion Chief Blas Minor of the Chandler Fire, Health and Medical Department said the boy found his way into the pool in the backyard of his home near Fir Street and Mall Drive in Chandler.
Minor said the pool was fenced but easily accessible, as a spring in the gate kept it from closing.
The boy was not breathing when his father pulled him out of the pool, but started breathing on his own and coughing up water after his father performed CPR, Minor said.
It’s unknown how long the boy was underwater.
