An 18-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital after nearly drowning on the southwest side of Tucson on Monday morning, July 10.

According to the Drexel Heights Fire District, the incident happened around 10:10 a.m. at a home in the 5100 block of South Spencer Avenue.

The DHFD said the woman was found at the bottom of their pool by her parents.
