PHOENIX -- Firefighters said a toddler drowned Sunday in a backyard pool near 32nd Avenue and Peoria Avenue.

The family reportedly lost track of the 2-year-old boy, and he somehow slipped through a door that went to the pool.

His father found him floating and began performing CPR until emergency responders arrived.

The boy was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

It’s not known how long he was in the water before he was discovered.
