GILBERT, AZ – A 1-year-old girl is in extremely critical condition after falling in a backyard pool Monday night in Gilbert.

Gilbert Fire Department spokesman Mike Connor said the girl’s family lost track of her until someone went outside and found her in the pool.

Air15 captured video of the home near Power and Queen Creek roads. Police crews on scene were trying to determine the circumstances of how the girl got into the pool.

The family started CPR until fire crews arrived. It’s unclear how long she was in the water.

Firefighters said the house did not have a pool fence.

The girl was flown to Cardon Children’s Medical Center in extremely critical condition.
