GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A 3-year-old boy is in critical condition after his family found him at the bottom of their pool Tuesday afternoon, Glendale fire officials said.

There was a massive response to the home near 75th Avenue and Union Hills.

The boy made it his way outside, got over a short barrier and fell in, fire authorities said.

Firefighters said the pool was green. They don't know at this point how long the boy was under water.

The family started CPR and called 911.

Crews flew him to Phoenix Children's Hospital, where he was fighting for his life.
