A five-year-old boy drowned in a pool in Ft. Bend County yesterday.

It happened around 7:30pm during a birthday party at the Greatwood Pool #3 off Winding Brook Drive and Shadow Bend Drive.

Authorities tell Eyewitness News the young boy, who's been identified as Jaden Nwokedi, was in the shallow end with friends when everyone lost track of him. Nwoked couldn't swim, and when they found him and pulled him out of the water, his lips were already blue.

A nurse who happened to be at the scene began performing CPR until emergency responders arrived on scene.

The boy was transported via LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann Hospital with CPR still being performed. But it was too late.

We're told lifeguards were on duty at the time.
