July 26, 2019

DERBY, Kan. (AP) — Officials say a 9-year-old girl is in critical condition after a lifeguard rescued her from a swimming pool near Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports that a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor says emergency crews were called around 6:45 p.m. Thursday to a near drowning at the Rock River Rapids Aquatic Park in Derby.

Emergency radio traffic indicated she was unresponsive in the ambulance on her way to Wesley Medical Center’s emergency room, and that it was unknown how long she had been in the water.
