4-year-old airlifted after near-drowning at Lawrence school

LAWRENCE, Kan. - A 4-year-old child is recovering at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., after being airlifted from Raintree Montessori School in Lawrence, Kan ., late Monday afternoon.

A LifeStar chopper landed on a nearby street to transport the child after emergency crews responded to near-drowning around 4:30p.m. 
 
Parents we spoke with are not concerned about their children's safety after the incident.
 
"They have multiple opportunities to swim throughout the day, so you don't have an inordinate number of kids in any pool," said parent Kevin Tilly.
 
41 Action News reached out to the school, but our calls were not returned.
