A YOUNG boy has been rushed to hospital after nearly drowning in a swimming pool earlier yesterday morning.
Paramedics were called at about 10.15am after the male child was found unconscious in a pool.
An hour later he was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital conscious and breathing in a stable condition.
The incident is another in a line of recent pool accidents, including twin toddlers found lifeless in a pool in Sydney’s northwest Monday night.
The 23-month-old twins are currently in a critical condition at the The Children’s Hospital in Westmead.
Earlier this month paramedics attended two near pool drownings on the Gold Coast.
A three-year-old boy was taken to hospital in a stable condition while a 13-year-old girl was treated at home and did not require hospitalisation.
