HOUMA, LA — A two-year-old child passed away after drowing in his grandmother's swimming pool.
On October 5 at 5:02 p.m., Houma Police were called to the 3000 block of Redwood Circle after a mother found her two-year-old son in a pool unconscious.
The child's mother told officials that she was inside her mother's home baking cakes for her son's birthday party, which was to be on October 6, when they noticed the toddler was missing.
She along with other family members searched the area and noticed that the child was in the above-ground swimming pool behind the house.
Her son was unconscious when they found him; he was then removed from the pool and given CPR to no avail.
