A 7-year-old child was pulled from a pool Tuesday afternoon and transported to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

Phoenix fire said the child entered the shallow end of the pool without his “water wings” at a family friend’s house near 56th Street and Bell Road in Phoenix. There were about 5-7 kids in the pool, but no one immediately noticed the child was in the pool.

Three adults were also on site.

The child was eventually pulled from the bottom of the pool and 9-1-1 was called. Police arrived on scene and began performing CPR. Phoenix Fire arrived next and transported the child in critical condition to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Air15 video showed fire officials standing near the pool and coolers along the pools edge.

No other information was released.
