CERRO GORDO, NC (AP) — Authorities say a 17-month-old boy has drowned after he managed to get into an above ground pool at his family’s home in Columbus County.

Assistant Coroner William Hannah told local media outlets that Tristen Stewart was found floating face down in the pool around 4 p.m. Sunday at the home near Cerro Gordo.

Hannah says adults in the home were looking for the boy after he disappeared, and his grandfather found him in the pool.

Authorities say family members and later paramedics did CPR, but the boy died at the hospital.
