NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Officials in New Orleans say a 2-year-old boy found face-down in a pond at an apartment complex has died.

News outlets report that the cause and manner of Roman Trufant’s death remained under investigation Tuesday. However, police spokesman Gary Scheets says there is no reason to currently suspect foul play.

New Orleans Emergency Medical Services Lt. Jonathan Fourcade says paramedics were dispatched to the pond after the boy was found unresponsive in the water Sunday around 4 p.m.

Police brought the boy to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
