VANCOUVER -- One person was taken to hospital in serious condition after a potential drowning at an Abbotsford home Tuesday afternoon.

BC Emergency Health Services says it was called shortly after 12:15 p.m. and that several paramedics were dispatched to the home. 

The patient was taken to a local hospital and was then transported by air ambulance to a higher level of care hospital.
