Wichita Falls emergency medics responded to the scene of a possible drowning at an apartment complex swimming pool on Midwestern Parkway. A witness told the Times Record News a young child was treated by medics.

On Saturday, Wichita Falls police and emergency medics responded to a swimming pool at the Woodland Apartments on Midwestern Parkway for a possible drowning.

WFPD spokesman Sgt. Charlie Eipper said the officer was told a child had almost drowned in the pool. Responders found a four-year-old girl had been pulled from the pool and was with her grandmother.

The grandmother told police she had been keeping a close watch on her granddaughter and was watching her the entire time while she was floating on a little green inflatable device in the shallow side of the pool.

The grandmother said she looked away just for a second and when she turned back, she saw her granddaughter under water. She said she screamed out for help and ran over to get her. She said she pulled her out of the pool and noticed she was not breathing. Another woman showed up to help and began CPR. A few short moments later, she began to breathe again, and an ambulance was called.
