NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (AP) -- Officials say two toddlers are in critical condition after being pulled from a pool at a home in North Miami.

North Miami police tell media outlets that the 1-year-old and 2-year-old children were taken to the hospital Tuesday after they were found in the pool.

Police spokesman Cmdr. Rafael Estrugo says relatives discovered the boy and girl and pulled them from the water.

They called 911 and performed CRPR on the toddlers until paramedics arrived. It's unclear how long the children had been in the pool and if they lived at the residence.
