A child was hospitalized after being found unresponsive near a swimming pool last night.

EMS responded to an emergency call at around 7:00 yesterday evening at the Sagewood Apartments near 66th and Frankford. When crews arrived, they found a five year old lying unresponsive. KAMC 28 reports the child was taken to UMC, and released after recovering.

With the summer months approaching, the risk factors for drowning deaths increase. Officials remind the public to always supervise children near swimming pools.
