A child was revived by emergency personnel after nearly drowning in the backyard swimming pool of a home in Fremont Monday afternoon, according to the Fremont Fire Department.

Firefighters received a report of a possible drowning at about 1:05 p.m. at 34605 Mobile Court, according to the fire department.

Arriving firefighters found a Fremont police officer performing CPR on the child in the garage of the single-family home after the child was found in the pool by family members.

The child was stabilized and is expected to survive, according to the fire department.
