EDMOND, Okla. – Authorities say they were called to a tragic scene on Sunday afternoon.
Edmond police say they were called to a home along Oak Tree Rd. just before 2 p.m. on Sunday on a possible drowning.
Authorities say the victim’s mother said she was having lunch with her son on their patio when she went inside for a few seconds.
When she came back to the patio, her son was nowhere to be found.
The police report claims the victim’s mother ran to a neighbor’s house, who immediately began helping her look for the victim.
The neighbor began checking the victim’s swimming pool and bumped something with a skimmer pole on the bottom of the pool. At the point, witnesses say the victim’s body came to the surface.
Despite immediately beginning CPR, the child did not survive.
