CHANDLER, AZ – A toddler has been taken to the hospital after being pulled from a backyard pool in Chandler Wednesday morning.

Chandler Fire Department spokesman Tom Dwigging said the 3-year-old was found at the bottom of the pool by a parent at a home near Gilbert and Queen Creek roads.

The parent started CPR and the child began crying and was very active, Dwigging said.

Air15 video showed the child being put into an ambulance.

Dwiggins said the child was probably in the pool for one to two minutes.

There was no word on the child’s condition.
