CHANDLER, Ariz. -

An 8-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital Monday afternoon after he was found in a backyard pool.

It happened about 2:30 p.m. during a pool party at a home near Frye and Alma School Roads.

A group of kids were in the pool at the time, and adults were in the backyard supervising.

At some point, someone noticed the child was underwater, and pulled him from the pool. An adult started CPR on the boy.

It is unclear how long he was underwater for. He was taken to Banner Desert Hospital.

The latest on the boy's condition is unknown.

Firefighters are reminding everyone that with temperatures heating up and pool parties becoming popular, people need to always watch their kids around water.
