Boy, 3, nearly drowns in Tustin backyard pool – Orange County Register – California News

TUSTIN — A 3-year-old boy was found unconscious floating in his backyard pool Sunday, Aug. 6, before firefighters revived him, authorities said.

The Orange County Fire Authority received a call regarding the incident in the 13000 block of Hewes Avenue at 6 p.m., Capt. Stephen Horner said. Firefighters arrived at the house five minutes later, and the 3-year-old boy was not breathing and had no pulse, Horner said.

They performed CPR on him and were able to revive the child, he said. The boy was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

Before the incident, the boy was taking a nap at the house, Horner said. When his mother went to check on him, he wasn’t there.

“She frantically looked around and found him faced down in the pool,” Horner said.

There was no fencing around the pool, he said.
