    MADDOCK, N.D. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials say a 7-year-old boy nearly drowned in the swimming pool at the events center in Maddock.

    Benson County Sheriff Steve Rohrer says the boy was attending a party when he was pulled from the water Wednesday afternoon. Rohrer says others at the pool started CPR with help from a 911 dispatcher who provided critical instructions to those trying to revive the child.

    KFGO says he was taken to the hospital in Devils Lake before he was transferred to a Fargo hospital. Rohrer says the boy is expected to be OK.
