A 4-year-old girl nearly drowned in Oro Valley Saturday.

Battalion Chief Josh Hurguy with Golder Ranch Fire District says it happened at a home in the 11000 block of Gray Eagle, near Tangerine and La Canada.

Hurguy says a 4-year-old was in the care of her mother.

She was in the pool with a floatation device when she tipped over underwater and was unable to right herself.

A 12-year-old relative, who just completed CPR training, saw what happened and quickly turned the girl right side up and got her out of the water.

The little girl never lost consciousness or stopped breathing.

Golder Ranch Fire Paramedics transported her to UAMC for further evaluation.
