YORBA LINDA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Sunday said a toddler accidentally drowned in the backyard pool of a Yorba Linda home.
Deputies were dispatched to the home on Blue Gum Drive where at least 100 people had been gathered for a party on Saturday evening.
Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Colin Murphy said the child had been discovered in the pool by a partygoer. He was found unconscious, according to Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
“There was a registered nurse who was attending the party who initiated CPR on the toddler before paramedics arrived,” Hallock told KNX 1070.
The child was transported to Placentia-Linda Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Murphy said no one was cited or arrested.
No further details were immediately available.
