Boy Drowns In Pool In Orange County

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old boy reported missing by his mother drowned in a neighbor’s swimming pool.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Orange County deputies were in Pine Hills on an unrelated call late Sunday morning when the boy’s mother approached them to say he was missing.

Sheriff’s Lt. Todd Gardiner says a deputy sheriff soon found the boy face-down in a neighbor’s pool. Deputies attempted CPR on the boy, who was transported by rescue crews to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Gardiner said criminal charges are pending.
