PHOENIX -- A child was taken to the hospital in critical condition Saturday afternoon after being discovered at the bottom of a pool.

A birthday party was taking place in the area of 35th Avenue and Bell Road, when a boy between the ages of 8 and 10 was reportedly left unattended at the pool.

The child was wearing flotation devices when he entered the pool, but it is believed that at some point he removed the flotation devices from his arms.

The boy was unresponsive when he was pulled from the water.
