A 5-year-old girl nearly drowned at a private school in north Phoenix on Monday afternoon, according to Phoenix Fire Department.
The girl was pulled from the water by a lifeguard at Rancho Solano School at Greenway Road and 56th Street before the Fire Department arrived at about 2:30 p.m, officials said.
The lifeguard administered CPR. It is not known how long the girl was under water.
The girl might have suffered a seizure-like event, causing her to submerge in the pool, Phoenix Fire Captain Scott Walker said.
The girl is currently in critical condition at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Walker said.
