A 10-year-old boy is hospitalized at Harborview Friday after he nearly drowned in a swimming pool at his Bellevue apartment complex.
An alert neighbor may be credited with saving his life. The person was the one who spotted the boy around 6:45 p.m. Thursday floating but unresponsive in the pool.
The neighbor jumped in the pool to rescue the boy and began CPR on the child before paramedics arrived on scene.
Paramedics said the boy appeared to go without oxygen only for a short while.
The boy was playing with a group of children in the pool before the accident. The boy's mother was in the area at the time.
