A 6-year-old girl who nearly drowned in her backyard pool remained in critical condition Monday at All Children's Hospital, a representative of the St. Petersburg hospital said. A neighborhood boy noticed Deanna Rick of 711 Bayshore Drive at the bottom of the family's backyard pool Sunday afternoon. Deanna had been playing with her sisters and other children. Deanna was blue and not breathing when her father, David Rick, pulled her out and gave her CPR, said Tarpon Springs police Officer Barbara Templeton.
