A 2-year-old boy pulled from the family pool of a far west Phoenix home has died, according to Phoenix Fire Department officials.

The toddler was at the home near Indian School Road and 113th Avenue with his mother, grandmother and grandfather.

The boy had been missing for 30 minutes before his mother found him in the pool, said Capt. Scott Walker of the Phoenix Fire Department.

Authorities believe the boy crawled through the doggy door to the backyard. No other children were at the home.

Walker said the pool did not have barriers around it and had 3 feet of discolored water. The grandfather performed CPR on the toddler until authorities arrived around 1:40 p.m., Walker said.

The boy was flown to a Banner-Estrella Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
