JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says a 2-year-old drowned in his family's backyard swimming pool.

Officials say the drowning occurred about 6 p.m. Tuesday. A sheriff's office spokesman says the child was only missing for three or four minutes before family members started looking for him.

According to reports, an adult relative of the family was watching the six to eight children inside the home. The child's siblings searched for him and found the boy in the pool.

Officials say the sibling pulled the boy from the water and the caregiver attempted CPR.

Authorities have not released the name of the child or his family.
