A 4-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after his 10-year-old cousin pulled him from a backyard pool Monday afternoon.

Avondale Fire Department officials say the boy was found around 1:45 p.m. at the bottom of a pool near 115th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road.

Officials say the boy’s 10-year-old cousin jumped in the pool and pulled the boy out. CPR was performed on the boy until he started breathing again.

He was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in stable condition, officials at the scene said.
