QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Queen Creek toddler is recovering after nearly drowning in a backyard swimming pool.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the 1-year-old girl is in stable condition at a hospital after falling into the unfenced pool Friday evening.
Sheriff's spokesman Chris Hegstrom says a 13-year-old sibling was watching the girl and three other children while their mother went to pick up another child.
Hegstrom says at about 6 p.m., a 4-year-old sibling found the toddler in the pool and notified the teenager.
He says the 13-year-old pulled the girl from the pool and called the mother.
The mother performed CPR until paramedics arrived.
The sheriff's office says no charges will be filed against the mother.
