2-year-old KC boy drowns in pool

KANSAS CITY (AP) — A 2-year-old Kansas City boy died after falling into his family’s backyard swimming pool.

The accident Tuesday night was initially reported as taking place in a neighbor’s pool.

Police clarified Wednesday that the in-ground pool was in the toddler’s own yard.

Officers say it appears the 2-year-old was left alone for a few minutes and wandered into the yard. A sibling found him in the bottom of the pool.
