An infant is in stable condition tonight after nearly drowning in
a swimming pool at a home in Concord, a police sergeant said.
At about 6:15 p.m., emergency crews responded to a home in the
1700 block of Ducker Court near Walnut Avenue after receiving a report that
an infant had drowned in a residential swimming pool, Concord police Master
Sergeant Brandon Richey said.
Police arrived at the home first and found a non-responsive infant
being tended to by family members, Richey said.
Officers assumed life-saving efforts from the family, until
paramedics arrived to relieve the officers.
The infant was transported to a local hospital and was reported to
be in stable condition tonight.
The extent of the infant's injuries has not
been released, Richey said.
The near-drowning remains under investigation.
