A Fresno County baby is dead after it was found at the bottom of a family pool Thursday.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Smith said around 4:30 p.m., the 1-year-old child was discovered inside the pool at a home in the 1100 block of East Bullard Avenue east of Clovis.
Smith said five or six other kids were swimming in the pool when an older brother found the baby and removed the child from the water.
Smith said the family is not sure how the baby ended up in the pool. The parents performed life-saving efforts with the help of sheriff dispatchers and family.

The baby was later airlifted to Valley Children’s Hospital but was pronounced dead shortly after, Smith said.
The parents will not face charges, Smith said.
