DEERFIELD, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old child has died after being pulled from his family’s pool in Dane County.

The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1fzI1N8 ) reports authorities were called to a Deerfield home around 6 p.m. Friday. The child was taken to a hospital and later died.

Dane County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Eric Stacey said the child was unsupervised in the backyard near the pool, which had been drained but had some standing rainwater. Authorities say it’s not clear how the child got into the pool.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says the drowning appears accidental.
