Paramedics are reminding residents the dangers even small bodies of water can present to young children.

It comes as a mother anxiously contacted the Queensland Ambulance Service about 1.50pm yesterday after she found her young child immersed in a knee-deep dog water bowl at a Harristown property.

An ambulance spokesman said the mother rang the ambulance as a precaution after the child was found sitting and crying in the pool of water.

The child was conscious and breathing and was taken to Toowoomba Hospital to be checked.
