UPDATE: 2-year-old dead drowning at Vero Beach pool ruled accidental


A 2-year-old is dead after being found unconscious in a pool Monday evening at a home west of Vero Beach.

The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office is reported that the child was taken to Indian River Medical Center, but died. 

The accident happened around 6:15 p.m. at a home in the 1400 block of 48th Avenue.

“After a preliminary review of this case by our detectives, it appears as though this is an accidental drowning,” Sheriff Deryl Loar told the Sebastian Daily. “Our community mourns today as we see incidents like this far too often. Water and pool safety is always a concern in our community for children, the elderly, and those with special needs. Water hazards can become deadly in seconds, just as this incident shows.”
