The toddler fell into the pool, which wasn’t fenced-in, while at a family event in Avondale, Phoenix’s KTVK-TV reported. Family members didn’t know the boy had gone under because the water was too dirty. It was unknown how long the child was underwater.
After the boy was pulled from the pool, a family member performed CPR until first responders arrived, KNXV-TV reported. The toddler was rushed to a hospital in critical condition, but later died, officials told the station.
Avondale is about 19 miles west of Phoenix.
