TRENTON, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida toddler drowned in his family's swimming pool a week before his second birthday.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office says Maxwell Spears was unresponsive after his grandfather pulled him out Thursday.

Investigators say the accident happened in an aboveground pool, but the child could've walked straight into it on a deck connecting the pool to the home.

Maxwell's father and grandfather were doing household chores while watching him and another child. The grandfather returned from the laundry room to find the back door open and the boy in the pool.

The father and grandfather performed CPR until an ambulance arrived.
