WHITE PLAINS, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Charles County say a 3-year-old boy drowned in a swimming pool during a birthday party.

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office says the boy was swimming in an in-ground pool with several relatives late Saturday afternoon at a home near White Plains.

As some people were getting out of the pool, they saw the boy at the bottom of the deep end. A registered nurse performed CPR at the scene, and the child was rushed to a hospital, where he died.

The sheriff’s office says all signs point to an accidental drowning.
