PHOENIX — A 9-month-old child is in extremely critical condition after being pulled from a bathtub at a home in Phoenix on Saturday.
The infant was "pulseless and unresponsive" when crews responded to the drowning call at a home near 35th and Northern avenues around 3 p.m., Phoenix Fire Capt. Rob McDade said.
McDade said firefighters initiated "advanced life support" and were able to regain pulses on the way to the hospital, but the child was still unresponsive when they arrived.
"Definitely not out of the woods right now, but it is encouraging that the child did get pulses back spontaneously," McDade said. "So now we just wait for the condition of the child hopefully to improve."
The investigation is ongoing.
