A Mesa boy is expected to make a full recovery after he was pulled from the family pool Thursday afternoon.

Mesa Fire spokesman Forrest Smith said a father was in the pool with his 18-month-old son when he saw smoke coming from a neighbor’s home.

He got out of the pool, along with his son, to find out what was happening and when he got halfway there the father realized his son was not with him.

He ran back to the pool and found the boy in the water.

The father pulled the child from the pool and started CPR.

Smith said the child was alert and breathing when he was transported to a Mesa hospital.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
