AURORA, IN (FOX19) -

Dearborn County officials say a 5-month-old boy has died after drowning in a baby pool.

The incident happened just after 3 p.m. Monday in the 500 block of Pleasant View Drive in Indiana. According to the Aurora police chief, the child's mother, Erin O'Brien, was watering plants as the child was sitting in a Bumbo seat in the baby pool. She turned her back and the seat tipped forward, putting the child in the water.

Emergency officials did perform CPR at the scene. Officials say everyone in the area is being questioned about the drowning. No charges have been filed.

Bumbo seats are designed for babies learning to sit up, but are not meant to go in the water.
