A 1-year-old boy has been hospitalized after he was pulled from a pool at a north Phoenix home Saturday morning, according to Phoenix Fire Department. 

Fire officials say the child may have crawled through a doggie door to get to the pool. The pool fence reportedly did not lock.

The incident was first called out as a near-drowning.

Capt. William Benedict said when crews arrived at the home near Cave Creek and Grovers roads, they found the boy unresponsive in the garage area.

Crews said bystanders were already administering CPR when they arrived. The boy was rushed to Phoenix Children's Hospital and is currently in extremely critical condition.

This happened at the child's grandma's house.

The incident is now under investigation by Phoenix police, Benedict said.
