GREER COUNTY, Oklahoma -

An 8-year-old girl is in critical condition after a near drowning in Greer County. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a near drowning took place Monday evening at Lugert Lake.

The Altus child was out wading with her grandfather at Horsehead Cove. The girl stepped off into deep water and went under, an OHP report states.

The grandfather pulled her from the water and started CPR until she was taken to the Quartz Mountain Medical Center by ambulance. She was later flown to an Oklahoma City hospital where she was admitted in critical condition, according to OHP.

The investigating trooper did not release the girl's name due to her age.
