PHOENIX – Police say a 1-year-old boy pulled from a Phoenix canal last month has died.

Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said Gabriel Cordova passed away early Wednesday morning.

On July 25 the boy was being watched at home by his teenage siblings when he somehow slipped out of the home and ended up in the canal, police said.

A police officer jumped into the water and pulled the boy out after he was spotted by a passerby near 23rd Avenue and Indian School Road.

The officer performed CPR until fire department paramedics arrived.

The boy was taken to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in extremely critical condition where he passed away.
