A 1-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday after falling into a fish pond, Roseville authorities said.
An initial investigation found the child had been playing in the backyard in the 29000 block of Park, not far from his father, city police said in a statement.
The father turned away and when he looked back, the child had fallen into the fish pond, the release said. It appears the child was in the pond for a minute or two.
The Roseville fire and police departments were dispatched to the scene. The child was transported to a local hospital, where he was listed in critical condition Thursday, police said.
