Tragedy struck in Scottsdale, Arizona when a two-year-old boy drowned in a neighbor’s swimming pool.

The incident happened in the area of Scottsdale and Thomas Roads around 11:30 AM on Monday morning.

Local firefighters responded to the call, but the child was already taken to a local pediatric trauma hospital and passed away.

The home where the drowning happened was a short-term rental and was vacant at the time.

According to Scottsdale fire officials, drownings are unfortunately a common occurrence in their area.

They stress the importance of constant supervision when it comes to water safety, especially during spring breaks when more people are using swimming pools.

They recommend having a pool fence and designating one person as the pool or child watcher with a visible reminder like a necklace or baton.

Learning CPR can also be the difference between life and death in the event of a drowning.

The Scottsdale Fire Department wants to remind everyone that drowning is a silent killer and can happen in as little as one inch of water.

They urge parents to always watch their children and never swim alone.

In the wake of this tragedy, counselors are assisting the grieving family, and investigators are working to determine how the incident happened.
