Osceola County deputies are investigating Wednesday a possible accidental drowning involving a 1-year-old boy.

Deputies said they were called to a home in the 800 block of San Pedro Court, where they found an unresponsive 1-year-old boy laying next to the family pool.

Authorities performed CPR on the boy before he was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later. 

Deputies said family members told them the child accidentally fell in the pool and were able to get him out and call for help.

The incident is being investigated as an accidental drowning.
