SEMINOLE, Fla. (AP) - Pinellas County authorities say a 19-month-old boy has drowned in his family pool.
The sheriff's office says the toddler's older sister looked for him Saturday morning when she woke up but couldn't find him. She roused the adults in the house - her parents and grandparents - and they eventually found Dominick Lawrence in the pool. He was unresponsive. His parents and paramedics performed CPR but the boy was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The pool has a chain link fence around it but the family discovered the latch was apparently not secured.
Authorities continue to investigate the incident.
