Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said in a report Tuesday that the five-year-old boy fell to the bottom of pool and became stuck in the drain. Mr Campos said it happened Monday afternoon behind a home in downtown Atlanta.

Mr Campos continued that the housekeeper tried to get to the boy, but was unable to pull him from the drain.

The boy was eventually pulled from the pool, and given CPR by a man who was working at the home as an audio-visual subcontractor.

He was said to be "conscious, breathing and alert" when firefighters arrived before 4pm local time.

He is being treated at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite.
