The father immediately began CPR until Peoria Fire and Medical crews arrived and took over.

"This is a tragic reminder that constant eye to eye supervision is so important...two seconds is too long," said Tim Eiden of Peoria Fire Department.

Peoria FD said the boy was in the pool for unknown amount of time.

The boy was non-responsive and was transported to a local hospital where he later died. Peoria PD are investigating the circumstances.
