2-year-old boy found in family pool near Keller dies

A 2-year-old Tarrant County boy who was found in a back yard swimming pool on Sunday afternoon has died, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner's Web site.

The boy was identified as Kyle Ross who died Monday afternoon at a Fort Worth hospital.

Emergency crews responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the 400 block of Ridgeview Court in an unincorporated area of Tarrant County just west of Keller.

Parents told Child Protective Services officials that they were working in and outside of their home Sunday afternoon as Kyle and his 6-year-old brother played in a sandbox.

At some point, the 6-year-old walked into the house and his parents didn't see Kyle with him, CPS spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales said.

When the parents looked outside, they saw the toddler in the pool, Gonzales said Tuesday.

The cause of death was drowning and it was ruled an accident, the Web site stated.

Gonzales said that the 6-year-old was allowed to stay with his parents, but CPS continued an investigation.
