GLENDALE, AZ – A 1-year-old girl was flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in extremely critical condition after being pulled from a back yard pool in Glendale Friday evening.

Mike Young of the Glendale Fire Department said the call came from a residence near Bethany Home Road and 75th Avenue.

The girl was being watched with four other children by their grandmother at a home owned by the child’s aunt.

Fire officials say the girl’s 3-year-old brother opened the back door so the kids could get to the back yard.

There is a pool fence but it apparently doesn’t close all the way.

You could see from Air15 video that the pool is green and murky.

Fire officials say the girl was found face down in the pool for an unknown amount of time.

She was flown to the hospital and is expected to recover.
