Fargo Student in Serious Condition after Incident in School Pool

Posted:

A scary situation this morning at Fargo South High School - an unresponsive student is pulled from the swimming pool.

School officials say the student is in what they call "very serious" condition.

A lot of details are still very vague but we do know the pool was full of students swimming for a physical education class when the unconscious student was found.

Authorities say they got the call just after 11 this morning.

They aren't releasing the name or age of the student, but say a male was found in the deep end of the swimming pool.

A student in the class tells us three classmates found the young man at the bottom of the pool - immediately two teachers pulled him out from the water and began CPR.

We're told CPR was continued until paramedics arrived.

There were students throughout the entire pool area and then the student was part of that group of all students in the pool and was found in that other area of the pool. Was he submerged? All indications was that he was struggling.

Although Superintendent Schatz mentioned the student was struggling - a fellow classmate told us off camera that the student was found at the bottom of the pool - Drowning.
At this time Fargo Police is still investigating what happened - and we're told the student is being treated at an area hospital.
