CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) - A toddler was pronounced dead three days after being pulled from a backyard pool in Florida.

The News-Press reports that the 2-year-old boy died Monday at a Fort Myers hospital.

Cape Coral police say the father told officers his children had been playing in the front of the home, and he lost sight for his son for about 15 minutes. He found the toddler at the bottom of the pool, pulled the boy out and started CPR.

The Department of Children and Families is looking into the incident.
