Young Boy Drowns In Pool

A 3-year-old Superior Township boy died after falling into a swimming pool Wednesday afternoon.

“We received a phone call of a lost child, lost toddler, and when we were en route to arrive on scene we got another call back saying that the family had found the child and that he had fallen into the pool and they were starting CPR,” Derrick Jackson with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department said. “So HVA (Huron Valley Ambulance) was dispatched and they showed up and transported the child to St. Joe’s Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.”

Jackson says an aunt was watching the boy at a home when he disappeared.

Investigators say it appears to be a “tragic accident” and criminal charges are unlikely, although a report will be sent to the prosecutor’s office.
