Two Sioux Falls boys are in the hospital, one of them in critical condition, after a near drowning.
Police were called around 5:30 p.m. Friday to the Timberland Village apartment complex's indoor pool at 3401 E. 11th Street. By the time they arrived, a 12-year-old and 9-year-old boy had already been pulled out of the water by a nearby witness. They were unresponsive when they were pulled out. Investigators say the boys were playing in the pool with friends when they somehow went underwater.
Life-saving efforts were performed on the boys, who live at the apartment complex. Police say the 12-year-old is in critical condition and the 9-year-old is stable. Their names were not released.
The incident appears to be an accident and is still under investigation. No charges are pending.
