Two children unresponsive after being pulled from pool

LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – Two children were pulled unresponsive from a pool on Rose Street in Lancaster Friday evening.

Around 7:30 p.m., a 4-year-old boy and his 3-year-old sister were found by their aunt floating in a backyard pool at the home where they live with their grandmother and father.

Paramedics immediately began CPR and the children were rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Cheektowaga, the closest hospital to the home. Since that time, the boy was transported to Women and Children’s Hospital, but neither his condition or the condition of his sister is known at this time.

Police are calling this incident a swimming accident.
