SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

An elderly man was pulled from a Scottsdale pool after he showed signs of a possible stroke, fire officials said.

Several adults in the pool were holding the man face up in the water when fire crews arrived at 1900 N. Scottsdale Rd., said Scottsdale fire spokesman Dave Folio.

Bystanders told rescue crews the man was never under the water; he just appeared to be struggling, Folio said. 

Fire paramedics removed him from the pool, treated him and transported to Scottsdale Osborn Memorial Hospital.

His condition is not known.
