“Upon arrival we found the student alert and oriented on the side of the pool, who possibly blacked out while in the pool,” explained Eric Zanteson, a SPFD division chief.

Zanteson said the teen is currently in stable condition. Local firefighters/paramedics transported the swimmer to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena “for precautionary observation,” he said.

South Pasadena High School Athletic Director Anthony Chan said the 14-year-old is a member of the school’s swim team.
