4-year-old pulled from bottom of pool at west Wichita apartments

A 4-year-old boy was rushed to Via-Christi Hospital on St. Francis in critical condition today after being pulled from the bottom of a pool.

The incident happened shortly after 3 p.m. at the Madison Park Apartments swimming pool in the 3600 block of West 13th.

Wichita police Sgt. Steve Yarberry said that when he arrived at the scene, the boy had been pulled from the water and EMS crews were doing CPR.

"I don't know how long he had been in the water, probably just a few minutes," Yarberry said.

About a dozen people _ both children and adults _ were at the pool at the time of the accident, Yarberry said.
