The child who nearly drowned at an Eastland Public Pool Friday evening was released from the hospital Saturday night.

Four-year-old Trevor Maddox was flown to a Fort Worth hospital after getting into deeper water during a private birthday party.

Lifeguards were on duty, but Trevor's mother told KTAB Saturday that her brother was the one to pull the child from the water -- and that she and her husband performed CPR until medics arrived.

The Eastland City Manager said they are now beefing up lifeguard presence at the community pool, adding an extra lifeguard during smaller events.
