Boy dies after being found floating in backyard pool

NORTH BEND, Ohio (AP) — A 3-year-old boy died after he was found floating in a backyard swimming pool in Ohio last week, authorities said.

The sister of the babysitter found the boy face-down in the deep end of the pool in Miami Township shorty after 10:30 a.m. Friday, the Hamilton County sheriff’s office said.

She dove in and pulled the child to the side of the pool, where the babysitter performed CPR, officials said.

The child was taken to Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased, they said.

Detectives are investigating but foul play isn’t suspected, the sheriff’s office said. The child’s name wasn’t released.
