Drowning in Phoenix on Thanksgiving Day

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A 2-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being found in a pool at a Phoenix home Thursday morning.

Phoenix firefighters and police officers responded to a home near Seventh Street and Bethany Home Road around 10:30 a.m. The toddler was pulled from the pool before responding crews arrived but was unresponsive. Officials say it's unclear how long the child was underwater. The little girl was taken to Phoenix Children's in extremely critical condition.

Editor's note: The initial report from police said the child was a boy. In an update Friday, morning police corrected the information to say it was a little girl who was pulled from the pool.
