El Mirage, Arizona rescue crews said a 3-year-old boy was in critical condition Friday night after nearly drowning in a backyard pool. El Mirage Fire Spokesman Howard Munding said CPR was started before rescue crews got on scene, and that may have saved his life. Munding said there was no pool fence.
The leading cause of accidental death for children is drowning. Hopefully, this young boy won’t suffer the devastating consequences of a near drowning.
