A girl was revived after she was found not breathing and floating face down in a pool in Santa Clarita on Thursday, according to Los Angeles County fire officials.

The 3-year-old was not alert or awake when she was found by family members in a community pool, Captain William Edwards said.

The incident happened at the Northpark community pool in Santa Clarita, according to the The Santa Clarita Valley Signal and SCVTV. The outlets also reported that the girl was 2 years old.

“They pulled her out and gave about a minute of CPR,” Edwards said.

People at the scene were able to revive the child, he said, performing CPR correctly before first responders got to the scene. By the time a helicopter arrived to airlift the girl to a nearby hospital, she was conscious and breathing, Edwards said.

Edwards had said that the pool was located in the neighborhood of North Hills.

He said investigators are looking into the incident. No further information was released by authorities.
