WEBSTER, Texas (KTRK) -- A 3-year-old was rushed to the hospital after he was pulled from an apartment complex pool on Sunday, July 3, officials said.

At about 1:45 p.m., police responded to a call reporting a toddler was found floating in one of the pools at the Baystone Apartments located at 800 West NASA Parkway.

Investigators said the child was at the pool with his family when he went under.

First responders started CPR when they arrived on the scene before taking the 3-year-old to HCA Houston Clear Lake Hospital, officials say. Webster police later confirmed the child died at about 7 p.m. on July 5, two days after the incident.

The pool area, located near the front of the complex, has a regular size pool with depths up to 7seven feet. There was also a more shallow kids pool nearby. It's not clear which pool the child was in.
