A four-year-old Pahrump boy was flown to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas after a family member discovered him at the bottom of the family pool on Monday.

Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue crews responded to the home along the 700 block of Mt. Charleston Drive just after 1 p.m.

Initial reports indicated the boy was submerged for roughly one minute before he was discovered and pulled from the pool.

Medics transported the boy, who was conscious and breathing, to the Mercy Air helipad on Calvada Boulevard, where he was flown to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Nye County Sheriff’s deputies also responded to the scene and are investigating the incident.
