BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Beaumont police say a 3-year-old boy has died after being found at the bottom of a motel swimming pool.

Police and Child Protective Services are investigating Monday night’s death of Romilio Madina. Officer Carol Riley says the child was wearing an inflatable device prior to his death.

A police statement says officers were summoned to a Super 8 about a possible drowning. The boy was at the motel with some of his mother’s friends. Three of those friends were at the pool with the boy when they noticed him at the bottom.

Emergency personnel transported Romilio to a Beaumont hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
