Tennessee toddler dies in neighbor's swimming pool

CLEVELAND (AP) — A young child has drowned in a neighbor's swimming pool in Bradley County.
The 22-month-old boy was discovered Tuesday afternoon in about 3 feet of water.
Sheriff's spokesman Bob Gault stated in a news release the boy was taken to SkyRidge Medical Center in Cleveland, where he later died.
Detectives said the child was in the care of his grandparents when he got out of their house, went across a street and got into the pool.
An autopsy will be conducted at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Authorities said the death appears to be accidental. The child's name wasn't immediately released.
