GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A 16-year-old boy died after he was pulled from a Glendale swimming pool by his friends early Monday morning.

The boy was swimming with two friends at the San Lagos apartment complex about 5 a.m. when they lost track of him, a Glendale Fire Department spokesman said.

Fire officials said the three were racing underwater. Two got to other side, turned around and saw their friend underwater.

They jumped in, pulled him out of the pool and performed CPR until firefighters arrived and took over lifesaving measures, the spokesman said.

The teen was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the spokesman said.

The Glendale Police Department said it does not appear that anything criminal happened.

Glendale fire officials said impairment doesn't appear to be factor. All three were athletes and were regularly tested.

The Maricopa County coroner is determining the cause of the death.

The complex is near 59th Avenue and the Loop 101 Agua Fria Freeway.

According to the apartment manager, the pool is open 24 hours a day.
