EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A toddler had died after falling into a swimming pool at a home in East Hartford.

Police say the 1-year-old was pulled from the pool on Pendelton Drive at about 7:45 p.m. by family members who performed CPR until emergency crews arrived.

The child was died later at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.

WFSB-TV reports the child was staying at the home of a relative while his parents were at Middlesex Hospital, where the mother was in labor.

No names have been released, and no charges were filed Wednesday.
