Holiday boy who nearly drowned still in critical condition

PALM HARBOR — A 3-year-old boy who was found unresponsive in a backyard pool on Sunday evening remains in critical condition, hospital officials said Tuesday afternoon.

The child, Tryston B. Sierra of Holiday, was flown to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, after he flipped over in a child's float device and nearly drowned about 7:30 p.m.

The child's mother, Desiree Sierra, was visiting friends at the home at 3420 Dove Hollow Court. Tryston and other children were in the pool as parents watched, according to Pinellas County deputies.

Paramedics from Palm Harbor Fire Rescue responded and were able to restore the boy's pulse before he was taken to the hospital.
