MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A 3-year old is dead after drowning in a swimming pool at a home on Ravenwood Drive, which is just off of Woodley Road.

Authorities say the toddler's grandmother put the boy to bed for a nap and when she went to check on him, she found the bedroom window open and the boy floating in the pool.

Medics tried CPR and then rushed the boy to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Montgomery Police Department continues to investigate the case.
