PHOENIX -- A 1-year-old boy is fighting for his life after taking a tumble into a backyard swimming pool.

It happened Tuesday evening at a home near 33rd and Sweetwater avenues in Phoenix.

Five adults were home at the time.

The toddler somehow got past a small barrier and fell into the water. He was found at the bottom of the pool.

A family member pulled him out and a neighbor helped perform CPR until paramedics could get there.

At last check he was in extremely critical condition.

It's not clear how long the little boy was in the water.
