A boy was rushed to the hospital Saturday after he nearly drowns in an apartment complex swimming pool. He is now in stable condition.
A fire department spokesman said his initial condition was listed as code three. That's the most severe emergency condition.
He was rescued from a pool on the 8700 block of Norton. That's in northeast El Paso. The fire department spokesman tells ABC-7 the boy was between 10-15 years-old.
Rescuers say the boy was playing under water when he stopped coming up for air.
