HOUSTON (AP) - Police say a 3-year-old boy has died and his 1-year-old brother is in critical condition after they fell into a drainage ditch in northeast Houston.

The children’s mother found them in the pond close to their home around 5:15 p.m. Thursday. Their father arrived shortly after, and the parents were unsuccessful in performing CPR on the boys.

The couple brought the children to a nearby fire station, and EMS took them to a local hospital.

Police say the 3-year-old was pronounced dead at the hospital, and his younger brother was flown to another hospital.

Police say the mother was bathing her 5-year-old when the two younger children left the home.

Investigators say the incident appears to be a tragic accident and no charges are expected. An investigation is ongoing.
