A toddler is fighting for life in a Sydney hospital after almost drowning in a backyard pool.

The two-year-old boy was rescued at a home on Castlewood Drive, Castle Hill, just before 4pm on Saturday and airlifted to hospital.

He was still in a critical condition at the Children's Hospital at Westmead on Saturday evening but due to privacy restrictions, his current condition is unknown.

The boy was believed to have been in the pool for five minutes before he was found, the Seven Network reported on Saturday.
