Child in serious condition after pool incident

"Officers with the Winston Salem Police Department responded to a call of an unconscious child at the pool in Salem Crest Apartments.  On arrival officers discovered a 9 year old male child who was unresponsive and not breathing.  CPR was performed by Officers on the scene as well as civilian personnel.  Fire and EMS responded and the child was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center where he is being treated at this time. 

Investigation revealed the child was observed not moving and underwater in the pool.  He was pulled out by a passerby who heard someone calling for help.  The child was apparently in the pool without adult supervision at the time of the incident.   The child’s parents have been notified and responded.  The child remains in serious condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. 

Investigation into this matter continues.  No additional information is available at this time."
