A member of the South Pasadena High swim team was transported to a nearby hospital Friday afternoon after local fire department paramedics responded to a possible drowning at the Aquatics Center on campus.
At about 3:45 p.m. the South Pasadena Fire Department received a call of a possible drowning involving a female swimmer.
“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.
