Deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a call from a mobile home park located off Gulf Highway in Lake Charles on June 20, at about 8:00 pm, in reference to a possible drowning, said a media release from Kim Myers.

The 4-year-old boy, who had been at the pool with family members, was found at the bottom of the pool.

Attempts were made to save the boys life until EMTs arrived. Sadly, after he was taken to a local hospital he was pronounced dead, said Myers.

Our prayers are with family and friends of the 4-year-old.
