UPDATE: As of 5 p.m., the 1-year-old boy is still alive, according to sheriff's officials.
A toddler is battling for life today after being discovered unresponsive in a Dana Point hot tub Friday morning.
Police received a report of a toddler found in the water at 10:40 a.m. on the 26800 block of Calle Hermosa, said Gail Krause, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
“The family was giving CPR when deputies and the fire authority arrived,” said Krause.
The child was rushed to San Clemente Hospital where the child was airlifted to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
"They got a pulse back at the hospital," and then rushed him to the children's facility at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, where he is in critical condition, said Orange County Fire Authority Marc Stone.
It's not clear exactly how old the boy is, but he appears to be about 18 months old, Stone said.
