Authorities say a 4-year-old Ahwatukee boy is in stable condition after he was pulled from a backyard pool on Sunday.

Phoenix Fire Department Capt. Jonathan Jacobs said the near drowning happened around 3:30 p.m. on May 26 near Pecos Road and 27th Avenue.

Jacobs said the boy was pulled from the pool and a bystander did CPR poolside.

The victim responded to the CPR, throwing up a large amount of water.

When firefighters arrived the child was awake but very lethargic.

He was taken to a Valley hospital in “serious condition” for further evaluation.

Jacobs said the boy responded well to treatment during transport and became more responsive and alert.

His condition improved and he is now listed in “stable” condition.

Jacobs said the incident was not an issue of a lack of barrier or supervision. He said adults were watching the child when he became unresponsive in the pool.
