Baby drowns in Clovis pool

A 10-month-old boy drowned in a pool at a Clovis home Saturday evening, the Clovis Police Department said.

Cpl. Vincent Weibert said the child was found in the pool at the home on the 2000 block of Los Altos Avenue around 5:40 p.m. The child was taken to Clovis Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Weibert said the boy was watching television in a bedroom when his mother fell asleep. She woke up about half an hour later when she found him in the pool. The door to the backyard had been left open, and there was no fence surrounding the pool.
