Goodyear fire officials expect a 6-year-old girl to be OK after she nearly drowned at the Southwest Valley Family YMCA Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters responded to the YMCA near Litchfield and Thomas roads about 12:45 p.m. after lifeguards pulled the girl from the smaller of the two pools, Goodyear fire spokeswoman Tanja Tanner said. She had been underwater for less than a minute.

The girl was conscious and coughing up water when she was pulled from the pool, Tanner said. She was taken to Phoenix Children’s Hospital as a precaution.

It was not clear what happened or if her parents were there, she said.

No other details were immediately available.
