An Ogden boy is in critical condition after nearly drowning in Crystal Hot Springs on Saturday.

Authorities said the 10-year-old was camping with his family in Honeyville in Box Elder County.

Lifeguards discovered the boy underwater and pulled him out.

He had a heartbeat and was still breathing, but wasn’t responding so he was taken to Brigham City Hospital in critical condition.

The boy was later flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City.
