Units with Apache Junction Fire also responded and helped with life saving measures.
The child was blue in color and was not responsive.
The toddler was transported to Arizona Regional Hospital by Apache Junction Fire where doctors were able to establish a faint pulse. The child was then flown to Cardon Children's Medica Center in Mesa where he remains in extremely critical condition.
According to the father, the two were visiting the child's grandparent's home to swim when he left the child to use the bathroom. The child was outside with a Labrador retriever when he somehow fell into the water.
There is a protective safety fence around the pool, however the entrance was found left open. The father claims he was only away for aprox. two minutes.
The investigation is ongoing.
