A 4-year-old boy drowned after apparently climbing under a pool fence into the family's pool.
Reed Drozd was missing at least 10 minutes before he was found in the pool in the 2100 block of West Utopia Road in North Phoenix. He had no pulse and wasn't breathing when firefighters arrived at about 6:30 p.m., Phoenix Fire Department Deputy Chief Bob Khan said.
There have been 22 water-related incidents in Phoenix this year involving children; four have drowned.
