Incident at 3400 Ocee

July 14, 2006 -- A 3-year-old boy is in extremely critical condition after nearly drowning in an apartment complex pool at 3400 Ocee on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at about 7 p.m.

Houston Police Department Homicide Division Sergeant J.H. Roberts and Officer C.Y. Park reported that the boy was outside with his father and two brothers and other family members playing in the parking lot that evening. The victim's father noticed that the boy was no longer in the parking lot just before hearing a woman near the pool yelling about a boy.

The boy's father ran to the pool and saw the woman pulling the child from the pool. CPR was performed on the child before HFD transported him to Texas Children's Hospital.

The investigators will be trying to determine whether or not the pool gate was properly locked as well as how the child got into the pool.
