An 18-month-old is in the hospital but is expected to be OK after a near-drowning in the 3300 block of W. Grandview Road in Phoenix, police said.

Authorities tell CBS 5 the boy found his way outside and into the pool Thursday morning while in his grandparents’ care. Police say the child may have been in the pool for 3 to 5 minutes and was not breathing when he was pulled out of the water.

CPR was administered and the boy was breathing on his own when he was taken to the hospital. He is expected to recover.
