A toddler is in critical condition in the ICU after being pulled from a backyard pool in Glendale Saturday afternoon.
Glendale Fire Department spokesman Gilbert Mancilla said family members pulled the 2-year-old girl from the above ground pool and started CPR until paramedics arrived at the home near 59th and Olive avenues.
Mancilla said paramedics were able to restore a pulse on the girl while on the way to the hospital but she was having difficulty breathing and didn’t regain consciousness.
There was no immediate word on how long the little girl was in the water before she was found. She and her mother were apparently visiting at the home.
Mancilla said the girl was able to get to the pool through a dog door.
