A nine-year-old boy was rescued from a swimming pool at Finglas Sports and Fitness Centre in Dublin yesterday evening.


The child was pulled out of the water after being submerged for an unknown amount of time, according to The Irish Sun.


Dublin Fire Brigade were alerted by an emergency call just before 6.15 pm, and attended the scene.


An ambulance also rushed to the scene, and the little boy was treated by paramedics before taken to hospital for further assessment.



The little boy was conscious and breathing when he was being taken to hospital. He was admitted to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.


A member of Dublin Fire Brigade told The Irish Independent: "I can confirm that a nine-year-old was taken from the swimming pool at about 6.15pm.


"It was a near drowning incident, but he was brought to hospital."


A hospital spokesperson said: “A child was admitted from Finglas after a drowning-related incident. His condition is described as stable.”


We wish him a speedy recovery.
