A 1-year-old boy was flown to a Valley hospital Tuesday after he was pulled from a Buckeye pool.

The child fell into a pool at a home on the 19000 block of West Virginia Avenue, said Sgt. Jesse Spurgin, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Sherriff’s Office.

He was pulled from the pool and CPR was initiated, he said.

When officers arrived shortly before noon, the boy was breathing and crying, Spurgin said.

The toddler was flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Buckeye Fire Department Chief Bob Costello said.

His condition is unknown.
