Northwest Fire crews saved a 13-year-old boy from nearly drowning Sunday night.

According to the department, the crew responded to the 4200 block of North Flowing Wells Road at 6:43 p.m. after the boy's parents found him in a neighborhood pool after he had been seen jumping into the water.

The father pulled the boy from the pool and administered CPR while family members called 911. The father got the boys heart beating again before crews arrived. The boy was taken into the hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
