HANSVILLE – A father rescued his two-year old son after the toddler reportedly fell into a retention pond in Hansville on Saturday afternoon.

The boy had wandered away from home around 4:30 p.m. and a neighbor called 9-1-1 to report that the toddler had fallen into the pond, Kitsap Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson told Q13FOX News.

The boy’s father pulled the boy out of the pond and started CPR, Wilson said.

North Kitsap Fire and Rescue crews arrived at the home, in the 36800 block of Pine Place NE and transported to boy to a nearby landing site, where a helicopter was waiting.

Wilson said that medics reported that the two-year old was breathing and semi-conscious. The boy was airlifted to Childrens Hospital in Seattle; his condition is not known.

Wilson said that an investigation continues on the incident but it appears to be an accident.
