(Cordova, TN) A boy almost drowned in the The Orleans pool Tuesday afternoon.

A Shelby County dispatcher spoke to someone at the scene and told that person how to administer CPR to the 7-year-old until emergency crews arrived.

A deputy also gave the boy oxygen.

The child then rushed to LeBonheur. His condition is serious but stable.

Officials say it is unclear how long the boy was underwater.

The Orleans is off Walnut Grove, near Houston Levee.
