Toddler dies after falling into pond in Ohio

FAIRFIELD (AP) — Police have identified a toddler who was found in a backyard landscaping pond in southwest Ohio.

Fairfield police said in a statement Monday that the 911 call just before 9 p.m. Sunday reported a baby had fallen into a pond. Police transported 18-month-old An Luong to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A frantic woman can be heard on the 911 tape saying her baby fell in a pond and to hurry. A male who got on the phone said the baby was on a couch where his father and a neighbor were trying to perform CPR.

The male caller said the baby was “so pale” and not breathing.

Police are investigating. Results from a Monday autopsy weren’t immediately available.
