The child’s mom and godmother made the awful discovery at the home located at 3419 Acapulco Drive.

“Both of them realized at the same time that the door was ajar and they both rushed out to the pool area,” said Miramar Police Officer Natasha Richardson.

Both women jumped into action and pulled the little boy from the pool. They desperately tried to save his life.

They told investigators he was under for about two minutes.

“Between the two of them, they conducted CPR and got him to breath a little bit prior to rescue’s arrival on scene,” said Richardson.

They could only detect a shallow pulse.

The toddler was rushed to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Authorities said the child had a pulse but was barely breathing at the time.

Hospital officials told CBS4’s Ted Scouten the child is still breathing but it’s very labored breathing.

A neighbor, who did not want to show her face, said the children seem very happy there and the mother normally pays close attention as her children play in the yard.
