SULPHER SPRINGS, TX (KLTV) - A six-year-old boy is fighting for his life after falling into the Sulphur Springs city pool Tuesday afternoon.

Caleb Ryan Smith was pulled from the bottom of the pool shortly before 1pm by a lifeguard, who began CPR.

Officials tell us Caleb was on a field trip with his day care.

The boy was then taken to Memorial Hospital where he was reportedly placed on a ventilator and flown to Children's Hospital in Dallas.

The pool was closed after the accident.
