A 2-year-old Boulder Hill boy was pulled from a retention pond near his home at about 12:45 p.m. Monday, according to the Kendall County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies were called to a home in the 200 block of Fernwood Road at about 12:15 p.m. for a report of a lost child. Deputies and an Oswego Police officer found the boy in critical condition a short time later in a retention pond near his home.
Officers began to immediately perform CPR and were doing that when paramedics from the Oswego Fire Protection District arrived a short time later, said Dan Schiradelly, OFPD battalion chief. He was taken immediately to Rush-Copley Medical Center, Schiradelly said.
"Our ambulance was there literally less than 20 seconds," he said.
Schiradelly said he could not comment on the boy's condition at the time he was taken to the hospital.
The Sheriff's Department is still investigating the incident.
