Firefighters from Riverside County Fire Department responded to a home in the 41000 Block Felton Court after receiving a report of a near-drowning that involved a 2-year-old, a spokeswoman reported today.

The firefighters arrived to the home shortly before 1:15 p.m. to attend to the child, who had already received CPR treatment prior to their arrival, according to Riverside County Fire Department Spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson.

There were no details available about how the drowning occurred at this point in time.

Hendrickson said that the child was transported via ground ambulance to an area hospital and that he was in stable condition at the time of transport.
