A two-year-old boy is in the hospital after his father discovered him at the bottom of the family's pool in east El Paso.

The El Paso Fire Department responded to the 12100 block of Quail Harvest Saturday night in what they are calling a near-drowning.

A spokesman for EPFD said he was rushed to Sierra Providence East and then taken to University Medical Center.

ABC-7 spoke with neighbors who say at least two young boys live at the home.

An update on the toddler's condition has not been released.
