A toddler who nearly drowned was in an ambulance that was involved in a crash on the way to the hospital.

The 20-month-old was found floating face down in a hot tub on Monday in the city of Magnolia, about an hour north west of Houston, KTRK-TV reports. A deputy arrived first and performed life-saving measures on the boy until medical personnel showed up.


The ambulance carrying him to the hospital somehow became involved in a crash with another vehicle. He was taken to the hospital in a different ambulance, where he was listed in critical condition.

Details on the circumstances surrounding the ambulance crash and the boy being found in the hot tub were not released.

Police continue to investigate. Watch the report below.
