Child discovered in Hudson pool expected to recover

HUDSON — A 17-month-old child discovered at the bottom of a pool on Tuesday is expected to recover, authorities say.

Pasco County sheriff's deputies and paramedics responded to a home on Pinto Drive shortly after 9 a.m. When they arrived, the boy had been pulled from the pool by his mother, who performed CPR and revived him.

The child is expected to recover, the Sheriff's Office said.

Earlier in the morning, the child was playing with his siblings in a bedroom, according to a news release. The mother briefly left the room, and moments later noticed the sliding glass door was open. This was odd, she thought, because it was usually locked.

That's when she saw the boy in the water. She jumped in and pulled the child out. He was alert after his mother revived him, authorities said, but was flown to a local hospital out of precaution.

The incident is under investigation, the Sheriff's Office said.
