2-year-old Boy Drowns In Pool

LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in Florida say a two-year-old boy drowned in a backyard pool.

The Sun Sentinel reports Lauderhill police spokesman Lt. Michael Santiago says police received a report of a "lifeless" child in a pool on Friday.

Santiago says there was no party or event taking place, but family members, friends and workers were present at the home.

He says a family member pulled the child from the water and the first officer on the scene performed CPR until paramedics arrived. The child was taken to the hospital, where he died.
