A 2-year-old boy was alive but suffered serious injuries after he nearly drowned at residential swimming pool in Temecula, authorities said this weekend.
Firefighters were dispatched at 3:41 p.m. Saturday to the 43100 block of Vista Del Rancho about the incident.
A relative had yanked the toddler out of the water and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him by the time firefighters arrived, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann said.
The boy was breathing and was taken to a hospital where he was listed in serious condition, Hagemann said. An update on his condition was not available Monday.
Two other near-drownings were reported in Riverside County the same day-- one in Eastvale involving a young girl, and another in Lake Elsinore involving a male toddler, according to Riverside County Fire Department records.
