A 2-year-old boy is in non-life-threatening condition after he was found Wednesday morning at the bottom of a whirlpool spa, Mesa fire spokesman Forrest Smith says.
The child was taken to Cardon Children’s Medical Center around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and seemed lethargic in the ambulance but became more alert at the hospital, Smith says. He is expected to be released soon from the hospital, Smith says.
The boy and his mother live in Las Sendas in northeast Mesa. She reportedly left him alone for a few minutes before discovering him in the spa. There is a pool fence in the yard, Smith says.
