FLORENCE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An Arizona boy drowned in his home swimming pool, just outside Florence, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said a mom was home with her six children, ranging in age from two to 15. A couple of the kids were outside, moving items from the yard into the garage on Monday when the mother realized her 2-year-old was missing.

He was found in the swimming pool. Deputies said she tried to give CPR, but the boy did not survive.

The pool does have a fence around it, but the gate was reportedly left open, giving the child easy access to the water. Authorities are using the tragic case to remind all parents to watch kids very closely around water and to make sure pool gates are locked.
