GILBERT – A 3-year old child has been pulled from a backyard pool in Gilbert and flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Firefighters tell us the boy was outside with his family near Germann and Power when he slipped off his floaties and then somehow got into the pool.

His family spotted him about a minute later and pulled him from the water.

He was not breathing — but a family member started CPR.

By the time paramedics arrived the boy was coughing up water and is expected to survive.
