Pool Accident Sends Boy, 12, to Hospital

September 02, 1999

NORTHRIDGE — A 12-year-old boy was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon after being pulled from a swimming pool by his baby sitter, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The boy, who lives in an apartment building in the 8400 block of Lindley Avenue where the pool is located, was breathing but "unresponsive" when paramedics arrived at the scene, Humphrey said. It was unclear how the boy, described to paramedics as a "special needs child," had gotten into the pool or how long he had been underwater.

"The boy may have suffered a seizure," Humphrey said.
