ANTIOCH -- An 18-month boy died Friday afternoon after he was found in a pool at a home.

Police and paramedics were called around 3:45 p.m. to the 2700 block of Zinfandel Court. Adults at the home said they had left the toddler and a 4-year-old in the backyard, but that there was a fence around the pool, according to Lt. Don LaDue.

When they returned to the backyard, they found the infant inside the pool. It was not immediately clear how the infant got into the water.

Medical responders performed CPR on the child and transported him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police are continuing to interview adults at the home.
