GERMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – A child pulled from a Clark County pool Saturday afternoon is still in the hospital Tuesday.
The girl had been in critical condition but has now been upgraded to stable condition.
German Township Police say the call for help came around 2:00 pm Saturday.
Chief Tim Holman said the girl was at a holiday party with her family when the incident happened.
He said officials are not sure exactly how long the toddler was at the bottom of the pool.
But she was there long enough that she inhaled a lot of water.
She regained a pulse, Holman said, after the Germantown police department began CPR at the scene.
She started breathing again once EMS began advance life support measures.
He said the toddler does have “a good chance of walking away, okay.”
The caller said a girl was found at the bottom of a backyard pool at a home in Penny Pike.
She was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital by Careflight where she remains in critical condition.
