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.
