A Mississippi toddler died last week after he drowned in his backyard family pool.

The baby, a 19-month-old boy from the Ovett community in Jones County, was found unresponsive in the pool by his mother, who then called 911.

Although first CPR was administered as soon as the child was pulled from the water, the toddler was pronounced dead later at a Laurel, Mississippi, hospital.
