A 3-year-old boy was transported to a local hospital Sunday evening in stable condition after he was found floating face down in a backyard pool in Goodyear, officials said.

The boy was awake and alert when firefighters arrived at about 5 p.m. at a home in the 10700 block of South Santa Fe Lane in the Estrella community, said Battalion Chief Russ Braden, a spokesman for the Goodyear Fire Department.

He was transported to Abrazo West Campus in Goodyear for further evaluation and treatment, Braden said.The boy was reportedly in the fenced pool area with family members who were cleaning up from the day’s activities when his 10-year-old stepbrother spotted him in the water and pulled him out, Braden said.

The boy’s father used the Heimlich maneuver, which caused him to cough up water, start breathing and begin crying, Braden said.
