YOUNGSTOWN - A 3-year-old boy died Wednesday in the pool of his grandmother's South Side home, police said.
Police were called about 2 p.m. to 3515 Belden Ave., where they were met by a crowd of hysterically crying adults and children, according to a report from Tribune Chronicle partner WYTV 33 News.
The police report lists the child's name as Kaden, and he lived at 3511 Belden Ave. with his mother and father, Aaron and Tina Gump.
Marcia Braden, 65, the child's grandmother, was watching several children who had been swimming - while wearing flotation devices - in a 4-foot pool, according to police and 33 News. She took them inside to eat and play games.
One of the children told police he had been in the house for about 20 minutes when he decided to swim again. While in the water, he felt something bump his leg, looked down and saw Kaden.
The boy dove to the bottom and brought Kaden to the surface, where he laid him on the deck and yelled for help, police said.
Braden attempted to revive him with CPR and called 911, but the child was not breathing when officers arrived, the police report states.
The grandmother told police Kaden must have slipped out of the house and went into the pool on his own while the other children were inside.
The report does not list the ages of the other children who were there.
Braden collapsed as she talked to police investigating the child's death, according to 33 News. She was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center for treatment.
This is the fifth drowning in the region this month.
