ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A 7-year-old boy drowned in a pool Monday night at a house in the 400 block of Endicott Lane.

Albany Police tell us the boy and his older brother hopped a privacy fence at the house a little before 8 o'clock.

We're told the boy went into the deep end of the pool. Paramedics received a 9-1-1 call but attempts to revive the child failed. He was pronounced dead at Phoebe Putney Hospital.

Officials say the child, whose name has not been released, was with his brother at the time of the drowning. The other child is ok.

Police say the homeowner was unaware the children were in his backyard.

The body will sent to Macon for an autopsy. In the mean, time investigators plan to question the surviving brother to gather more information.
