INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A 1-year-old boy is in critical condition after he nearly drowned Monday evening.

It happened just after 8 p.m. in the 5600 block of South East Street at a retention pond.

It is believed the child went into the pond chasing after a duck after gaining access to the pond through a broken fence.

The child’s mother then rescued the child from the pond.

The boy then had to be revived by medics after they arrived on scene before being transported to Riley Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

No foul play is suspected.
