TUCSON (KOLD) - A three-year-old boy remains in critical condition after he nearly drowned in the family's pool.

It happened at a home in the 11000 Block of South Cienega Dam Place Monday morning.

The boy's grandmother saw him floating in the pool and pulled him out.  The child's father then performed CPR on him.

Firefighters say he may have been in the pool for up to ten minutes.  It's unclear how he got in, because the pool was gated.

The boy is at Tucson Medical Center, where we're told he's breathing on his own.
