A Toledo teenager nearly drowned yesterday in a swimming pool at Larchmont West Apartments, 1233 Cribb St., in West Toledo, authorities said.
Cory Day, 15, of Larchmont West Apartments, was taken to Toledo Hospital for treatment. At his family's request, hospital officials declined to release the youth's condition.
Young Day, who can't swim, jumped in the pool about 5:15 p.m. in an attempt to prove otherwise to his friends, Toledo fire department diver Lt. Robert Klever said.
A nurse and a lifeguard, whose names were unavailable, resuscitated the teenager at the scene. He was breathing by the time a life squad arrived, Lieutenant Klever said.
