A toddler is fighting for his life after nearly drowning in the pool at a Panama City Beach motel Saturday afternoon.

Paramedics responded to the Flamingo Motel on Front Beach Road around 4:00p.m. First responders gave the four-year-old boy CPR and rushed him to Gulf Coast Medical Center. Saturday evening he was rushed to Sacred Heart Hospital.

Panama City Beach Police say the boy was with his mom and dad and the family is here from Alabama. Police are still trying to figure out what happened.

The toddler is in critical condition at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola.

    I have very sad news about my cousin. He couldnt make it he tried and we believed and prayed for him to be fine but the doctors gave us no hopes his brain died and they have one step and he is goint to get disconnected. Please please pray with us we wish we had something else that we could do but theres just nothing. Imagine how my uncle and aunt feel. Thank you so much for your prayers and now his is going to be another sweet angel in this world.

    I am also a cousin of the little boy, we are praying everyday for his return to us, but he is in very critical condition, he is not responding to anything at the moment but we do have faith that he will return to us soon. My family and i are praying to god as much as we can, i will inform of anything you need to know, and i THANK YOU ver SO MUCH for your prayers towards my cousin.

    I have news about my cousin. He was transfered to the birmingham childres hospital yesterday. He is not doing well, he has 90% of his brain injureda and the other part is the one that lets him breath and make his heart beat. The doctors are not giving is hopes. Like all the family says there a god that can do alot and we are praying for my cousin the only thing we have right now is FAITH. And we are praying for his life for him to be fine.
