Toddler Hospitalized After Nearly Drowning In Northridge Pool

NORTHRIDGE (CBS) — A toddler was hospitalized Thursday after he nearly drowned in a backyard swimming pool.

Firefighters responded to a call from the 8700 block of Corbin Avenue just before 8:30 a.m.

Paramedics helped restore the boy’s breathing before he was airlifted to a hospital, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Rich Matheney said.

The circumstances of the near-drowning were under investigation.

The boy’s mother was at the residence, and the child was out of the water when firefighters arrived, Matheney said.

    same way you make a fool for writing this type of message float!
    sorry to hear that the baby fell into the pool. when you are too busy to watch your child and there is a pool ijn make sure an adult is there or you should have built a gate around the pool and he could have still played without being supervised!! there will never be a next time if your son would have drowned!
