A young boy is in critical condition after being found at the bottom of a pool with his scooter in Phoenix, authorities said.

Glendale Fire Department officials said the boy, who is believed to be 2 or 3 years old, was found by his mother Friday afternoon at a home near 43rd Avenue and Greenway Road.

The mother jumped in and pulled the boy out, and the grandpa started CPR, officials said.

The boy was taken to a hospital with no pulse or respiration, but officials said he did have a heartbeat. Upon arrival to the hospital, the boy started breathing, officials said.

There was no safety fence surrounding the pool.
