Rescue workers respond to possible drowning in Spring Hill

SPRING HILL — Rescue workers in Hernando County on Monday responded to a reported drowning of a young child at a Spring Hill home. Paramedics took the child, a boy about 1 year old, from the scene.

Spring Hill Fire Rescue workers responded at about 12:30 p.m. and reportedly performed CPR on the child at the home at 11412 Corinthian St., south of Spring Hill Drive. There is a pool in the home's back yard.

A neighbor, Marvin Gottlieb, 81, said he saw several children playing on a trampoline at the house in the morning. Hernando County schools were closed Monday for observance of Presidents Day.

Gottlieb said he did not know much about the children or the family. "They are very quiet,'' he said. "I never saw much of them.''

Hernando County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Donna Black said late Monday that the boy was in critical condition at Spring Hill Regional Hospital.

The incident remains under investigation.
