PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A 1-year-old girl was found unresponsive not breathing from a near drowning near 40th Street and Union Hills Drive in Phoenix Tuesday morning according to Phoenix Fire Department.

Paramedics rushed her to Phoenix Children's Hospital in extremely critical condition and started advanced life support.

According to the parents who were home at the time, the little girl was found in a bucket of water located in the backyard said police.

The 5-gallon bucket was only filled a quarter of the way, approximately 6 to 8 inches of water said Phoenix Fire Capt. Rob McDade.

At this time, Phoenix Fire do not know how long the child was face down in the bucket.

She currently has a pulse and remains in ICU.

"The fact that the child has pulses right now at the hospital leaves us to believe the child has a good chance of hopefully making it through this but has a long road ahead," said McDade.

Phoenix Fire wants to remind parents "that you need constant supervision of your children, that's 24 hours. It's hard to do, nobody is perfect."
