UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WLWT) — A 2-year-old Kentucky boy has died of drowning after being found unresponsive over the weekend in a pool.

WLWT reports here that the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office identified the drowned boy as Grayson Cabell of Science Hill.

Grayson died Monday in Cincinnati Children’s Hospital after being found unresponsive in a pool in Clermont County, Ohio.

Lt. Scott Blankenship, with the Union Township Police Department, said it appears a gate was left open and Grayson managed to make it outside to the pool.

The young boy was attempting to reach for a toy when he fell in, Blankenship said.

It is unclear how long the child was in the pool before he was found.
