POMPEY, N.Y. (AP) - The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says a 3-year-old boy has died after wandering from a relative’s yard and falling into a nearby pool.

Detective Jon Seeber says 3-year-old Christopher Tackman, who lived with his family in East Syracuse, was visiting relatives in Pompey when the accident happened shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday.

The child’s family members found him in the pool shortly after they noticed he had left the yard. He was transported by the Manlius Fire Department to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives are investigating the incident, but Seeber said it appears to be an accidental drowning.
