St. Petersburg, Florida -- A 20-month-old boy was rushed to hospital Thursday morning after what appears to be an accidental near drowning.

Initial reports from police say the child was being watched by a nanny when at some point, the toddler made his way outside and fell into a neighbor's swimming pool on Hawaii Avenue NE.

While searching for the toddler, the nanny found the boy in the pool, pulled him out and called 911.

The child's parents are at All Children's Hospital, where the boy is believed to be in critical condition at this time.
