Boy pulled from pool revived

A 19-month-old Maui boy was revived by his father after being pulled from a swimming pool Sunday, a fire official said.

The family was at a vacation rental on Punakea Loop in Launiupoko when the incident was reported at 6:05 p.m. Sunday, said Fire Services Chief Edward Taomoto.

Family members found the child submerged in the pool and jumped in and pulled the unresponsive boy out. The child’s father started CPR, Taomoto said, and the boy was breathing on his own when firefighters and medics arrived on the scene at 6:15 p.m.

Medics transported the boy to Maui Memorial Medical Center in serious but stable condition.
