Ohio Child In Critical Condition After Near-Drowning

A six-year-old boy who almost drowned in a swimming pool Saturday was critical after a near drowning in Newark, Ohio last month.

Warren Meredith, the six-year-old, was flown to Children's Hospital in Columbus late Saturday after he was pulled from the bottom of a pool in Newark, where he had been attending a pool party, according to reports.

Little is known about the pool accident, except that the child was discovered at the bottom of the pool and pulled from the water by family. A doctor happened to be on the scene and started CPR on the boy before emergency crews arrived. A hospital spokeswoman said Sunday that no information was being released about Meredith.
