Girl Finds Sibling Unresponsive in Backyard Pool

Another child nearly drowned in a backyard pool Wednesday afternoon.

It happened in the 4100 block of SE 34th Terrace near Lake Shawnee at about 4:30 p.m.

Sheriff's deputies say a 2 year old was found by their sister, unresponsive in a backyard pool, then revived.

Deputies tell 13 News that the child was transported to Stormont Vail in what first responders consider critical condition.

Just Tuesday a 2-and-a-half year old boy nearly drowned in a pool on SE Highway 40. He was transported to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
