LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A toddler drown this afternoon in a pool at a home on the 8900-block of Fordham Street in Fort Myers.

The victim's name has not yet been released.

Detectives on scene say the drowning appears to be accidental. 

The family's pastor said the house is a home day care. He said there was a fence around the pool, but somehow the child got around the fence and into the pool.

Paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive the child on the way to the hospital.

The Lee County Sheriff's Department said no further information will be released today.
