R.I. police: Missing toddler found dead in swimming pool

COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) — A 2-year-old Rhode Island boy who climbed out of a window was found dead in a swimming pool, authorities said.

The Coventry boy was in his parents' care when he climbed out of his first-floor bedroom, police Lt. Matthew Blair said in a statement.

Police found him in the pool Wednesday afternoon while responding to a missing-child report. The boy was pronounced dead at Kent Hospital.

No charges have been filed. The Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families was notified.
