Wichita, Kan., toddler in critical condition after being pulled from creek

WICHITA, Kan. - A Wichita, Kan., toddler is in critical condition, just a day after being pulled from a creek.

The 3-year-old boy was spending time with his grandfather when he slipped down a hill and fell into a creek on Friday morning.

His grandfather called 911 and once an officer found the boy, he pulled him from the water and immediately began CPR.

"I want him to pull through," Darren Sundquist, a Wichita police officer said. "It's going to be hard. He was, he was very discolored. When I saw that his skin color was coming back, I had a lot of positive thoughts so a lot of hope."

The little boy is still in hospital in critical condition.
