Toddler okay after near drowning at Lubbock hotel pool

A toddler is expected to be alright after nearly drowning in a swimming pool at a Lubbock hotel Sunday evening.

Emergency crews were called to the Comfort Inn and Suites off 58th St. and the Interstate around 6:45 p.m., after a 13-month-old boy went under the water.

The boy's parents told KCBD that he loves the water and was playing in the pool when the accident happened.

The parents turned around for a few seconds when the tube that he was on flipped, causing the little boy to fall into the water.

The boy's father immediately started CPR until the toddler coughed up water and started crying.

He was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
