A 2-year-old Queen Creek boy is in extremely critical condition after his parents found him in a play pool in their front yard Monday.

Rural Metro Fire Department spokesman Capt. Mark Cichocki said the boy's parents left him unsupervised for approximately five minutes before finding him and pulling him from the pool in the 25400 block of South Hawes Road.

The parents began CPR with guidance from 911 operators. Paramedics took over treatment when they arrived and transported the boy to Gilbert Hospital.

Medical personnel at Gilbert Hospital were able to stabilize the boy enough that they could transport him by helicopter to Cardon's Children's Medical Center in Mesa. He is still in critical condition.
