Toddler hospitalized after falling into pool


A 20-month-old girl is in the hospital after falling into a family pool.

Hewitt Police say they found the girl unresponsive at a home located at 200 Hillside Drive.

The toddler walked into the pool when her father left her and three other children unattended to check on food in the kitchen.

The father’s seven-year-old child jumped into the pool attempting to save the toddler and started screaming for help. The baby was pulled from the water and was found unresponsive.

An officer attempted CPR, and a faint pulse was found.

The girl was rushed to Hillcrest Hospital and has just been upgraded to stable condition. She is reported to be breathing on her own, but is on a respirator.
