WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) — West Valley City police say a four-year-old girl is in critical condition after being rescued from a pool at an apartment complex.

KUTV-TV reports she is the third child to drown or nearly drown in the last four days.

Carlos Hernandez, who also lives at the apartment complex, jumped into the pool and rescued the girl after his daughter Mariangel made him aware of the situation on Tuesday.

Lt. Steve Burke with West Valley Police says the girl was breathing when she got to the hospital but she was in critical condition.

KSL-TV reports investigators say the child’s mom knew she was outside playing, but the mom might not have known the girl was in the pool.
