Boy, 4, drowns in pool at his Wis. home


A 4-year-old boy has drowned in a pool at his family's home in Kenosha County.

Authorities responded late Tuesday morning to a report the boy had been found without signs of life in the pool.

The sheriff's office says the boy had been inside the home with another sibling. The child's mother had her 8-year-old watch the 4-year-old for a few minutes while she was busy. She later went looking for the boy and found him in the pool.

The mother began CPR while rescue crews were on their way. Deputies and a rescue squad arrived and performed CPR on the boy for about a half-hour but were unable to revive him.

An investigation continues. No other information was released.
