LEBANON, Tenn. – A 2-year-old girl was hospitalized after she was found unresponsive in a pool in Lebanon on Friday morning.

Authorities in Wilson County were called to the home in the 500 block of Hicks Hollow Road around 8:45 a.m.

Family members said the girl wandered out of the house and fell into the pool.

Paramedics performed CPR and were able to revive the young child. She was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

"It was very helpful in saving this child's life because minutes matter, and as soon as you can initiate that, the better," said Joey Cooper with the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency.

Her condition was not immediately known.

An identity was not immediately released.
