PEORIA, AZ (CBS5) -

A 2-year-old girl went under water at a pool in Peoria over the Labor Day weekend and a neighbor is being credited for helping save her.

Peoria police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto said a call came in early Monday night that a 2-year-old had been under the water in the pool for an unknown amount of time at a home near 79th Avenue and Greenway Road.

A neighbor performed CPR and the girl was breathing by the time emergency crews arrived.

She was conscious and crying when she was taken to an area hospital.
