Mesa, AZ (April 23, 2022) – A 2-year-old is in the hospital after almost drowning in a neighborhood pool on Saturday, April 23rd.
Emergency rescuers responded to the scene on Gilbert Road in the area of US-60 for reports of a possible drowning.
Upon their arrival, they located a 2-year-old who had been pulled from the water and was being given CPR.
Responders took over the life-saving efforts and eventually used more advanced medical treatment until the child began breathing again. They were then transported to an area hospital for treatment.
No additional details were immediately available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Premises Liability in Arizona
Property managers and owners are liable for the safety of their visitors and guests. Individuals on the premises will come under one of three classifications:
- Commercial guests (Invitees)
- Social guests (Licensees)
- Persons not legally allowed on the property (Trespassers)
Those who fall under the first two categories are permitted to be on the premises and are entitled to the highest degree of care. If you were injured at a swimming pool, you need to determine what, if any, duty of care you were owed. Once that has been established, you will be able to go ahead with a premises liability claim.
In order to be valid, a premises liability case must have one or more of the below-listed elements. The more of these elements you can prove, the stronger it will be.
- The manager/owner of the property was aware of the danger and neglected to inform tenants or address the issue
- The manager/owner of the property is answerable for the risk or dangerous condition
- The manager/owner of the property was unaware of the hazard but, had they been conscientious of their guests’ safety, would have known about it
