GOODYEAR, AZ – A boy is in critical condition after being found in a Goodyear pool Tuesday afternoon.

Russ Braden with the Goodyear Fire Department said the 2-year-old was discovered by a parent in the pool in the area of Van Buren Street and Sarival Avenue.

Other children were at the home and had reportedly just gotten home from school.

An official at the scene said everyone lost track of the boy.

Officials believe the boy was under water for at least five minutes.

Braden said the boy was not breathing on his own and was flown to a Valley hospital in critical condition.

There is a pool fence, but it is unknown if there was a spot on it that was open, according to officials at the scene.

The boy’s condition remained critical as of Tuesday afternoon.
