APACHE JUNCTION, AZ – Authorities say a child pulled from a pool in Apache Junction last weekend has died.

Apache Junction Deputy Fire Chief Dave Montgomery said the 4-year-old boy never regained consciousness and died around 9 p.m. Monday at a Mesa hospital.

Montgomery said crews were called to the home near Southern Avenue and Tomahawk Road around 3 p.m. Sunday.

The family was in the midst of a party and getting ready to eat when they noticed the boy was missing, Montgomery said.

Police said the boy had been found floating face down after about five minutes.

“He had been pulled out of the pool by his 11-year-old sister, and an older cousin that was on the scene began to administer CPR,” Montgomery said.

Authorities have not released the name of the victim.
