IRVINE, Calif. (AP) - Orange County authorities say a 5-year-old boy is hospitalized in extremely critical condition after his father found him unresponsive in a backyard swimming pool.

Fire Authority Captain Steve Concialdi says the boy was not breathing when he was pulled from the water Wednesday afternoon in Irvine.

Paramedics performed CPR and managed to get his pulse back. The child was then rushed to a hospital.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1KlmOPW) the pool did not have a fence around it and the boy was reportedly alone at the time.
