A 5-year-old Hutchinson boy who nearly drowned in an apartment pool over the weekend is expected to make a full recovery.
Hutchinson police say Riley England was found unconscious at the bottom of a pool in the 1300 block of Ease 33rd Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Officials believe the boy wandered away from his family to play in the pool.
An apartment resident at the pool noticed the boy and pulled him out of the water. He was taken by helicopter to a Wichita hospital.
The boy is listed in critical condition but police say he is responsive and doctors believe he will have no lasting damage from the incident.
