Four year old boy rescued from pool

A four year old boy was rescued from a pool in a near drowning accident, according to the Tucson Fire Department.

It happened on the 6100 block of East Pima Street, near Tanque Verde.

A call was made just before 6pm.

Captain Jeff Langejans said a resident from an apartment complex told dispatchers that it was a four year old boy.

The child was found unresponsive -- face down floating on top of the water.

Crews gave the boy CPR.  He then began to spit up water and breathe on his own.

He was transported to the hospital and we're told his condition has improved.
