Neighbors rescue toddler after fall into pool overnight

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A toddler nearly drowned after falling into a pool at an apartment complex in the middle of the night.

Two neighbors came to the rescue just in the nick of time at the complex near 19th Avenue and Glendale. It was just after 3 a.m. on Friday.

Fire crews say a neighbor heard a splash coming from the pool and thought it was odd.

When he went to check it out, he found a 3-year-old boy had fallen in the pool.

The man jumped in and rescued the child.

Neighbor Melissa Walls says she heard a man screaming for help and saw the man holding the young boy.

He set the 3-year-old on the ground, Walls started CPR and the boy began breathing again.

"I was so relieved. I was praying and holding his hand. The way he was looking at me, he was so scared. The little boy was so scared," said Melissa Walls, who saved the toddler's life.

We're told the boy was breathing and conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

Fire officials say the toddler's parents don't know how he got out of the family's apartment.
