Raleigh, N.C. — A 5-year-old girl was in serious condition at WakeMed on Saturday night after she was pulled from a swimming pool in northern Wake County, authorities said.
The girl’s family was at a pool party at a home in the 5300 block of Winding View Lane, off Creedmoor Lane, and her mother told authorities she and others were watching children in the pool. The mother said she looked away for a few minutes and then didn’t see her daughter in the pool when she turned back.
Witnesses said the girl was found at the bottom of the pool in a shaded area. It’s unclear how long she was underwater.
Two party guests were doctors, and they immediately started performing CPR on her after she was pulled from the water, authorities said. They were able to restore her pulse before paramedics arrived, authorities said.
Wake EMS was notified of the incident shortly before 5 p.m. An ambulance with a police escort rushed her to WakeMed.
