AVONDALE, AZ – A 3-year-old girl has been rushed to the hospital after nearly drowning in the hot tub at an Avondale apartment complex.

Crews responded to the complex near 120th Avenue and Van Buren Street around 5:30 p.m.

Avondale fire officials tell ABC15 the girl was playing with another child in the apartment’s hot tub area when she went under the water.

Her father reportedly pulled her from the hot tub and she was conscious and breathing when crews arrived.

Officials say it is unclear at this time how long the 3-year-old was submerged.

The girl was airlifted to Banner Thunderbird Samaritan Medical Center in stable condition, according to Avondale fire officials.
