A 3-year-old was in critical condition Sunday after his grandfather pulled the toddler from a Buckeye pool.

Emergency officials arrived at a home near Baseline and South Rooks roads about 6:45 p.m. Sunday, according to Buckeye fire Capt. Tommy Taylor. The toddler’s grandfather was performing CPR, Taylor said.

The toddler was immediately taken to a hospital, where he remained in critical condition Sunday evening. 

It was not immediately clear if there was a fence or safety barrier in place around the pool, Taylor said.
