OZARK, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a 9-year-old boy in Alabama has drowned, possibly after wandering into a neighbor’s pool.

WSFA-TV reports Dale County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a drowning Sunday evening. They found the boy and conducted CPR until Ozark Emergency Medical Services arrived. Dale County Chief Deputy Mason Bynum says the boy was then taken to a medical center and pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

Bynum says a preliminary investigation says the child may have wandered away from his home and into a neighbor’s pool. The investigation is ongoing.
