PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) — A toddler in eastern Nebraska is recovering after nearly drowning in a family pool.

Omaha television KETV reports the 2-year-old girl was found floating Wednesday evening at a home in Papillion. She was taken to a nearby hospital before being transferred to another hospital. She is in stable condition.

Papillion police say the child slipped out of a door and entered a gate that led to the backyard pool. Another child found the girl, and someone at the scene performed CPR until medics arrived.
