Toddler alert after being pulled from Phoenix pool

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 1 1/2-year-old boy was alert and crying after he was pulled from a pool by his father early Friday morning.

The boy's father said he found his son floating in the pool at a residence in the area of 42nd Street and Shea Boulevard about 7:45 a.m., said Phoenix fire Capt. Ruben Saavedra.

He pulled the child from the pool and ran with him to a neighbor's house for assistance with CPR, Saavedra said.

The father told firefighters the child was in a walker and that he briefly stepped away before finding his son still in the walker and in the pool, Saavedra said.

The pool had a security fence, but the father said the latching device might have failed, Saavedra said.

The child was crying when firefighters arrived, and was taken to a nearby emergency room for evaluation, Saavedra said.

On Thursday, a 2 1/2-year-old boy died at a Phoenix hospital after he was found in a pool in Anthem.

No other information was immediately available.
