FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Fort Bend News) – A 3-year-old boy died after drowning in an apartment complex pool Sunday.  The incident happened in the 1500 block of West Airport Boulevard at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, June 2, 2019.

The boy’s family was as at the pool according to Major Chad Norvell of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.

“The child originally had floaties on but he took them off to eat at the pool,” Norvell said. “He then was seen on video sitting on the edge of the pool. He slid into the water and was floating for 12 minutes before he was spotted by the father.  He (the father) jumped in and began CPR.  EMS continued CPR but the child was dead on arrival at the hospital,” Norvell said.

This incident follows three recent drownings in the Katy/Harris County. Two of them happened on Memorial Day.
