GILBERT, AZ — A child is dead after drowning at a home in Gilbert.

At about 2:30 p.m., Gilbert Fire and Rescue crews were called to a home near Greenfield and Guadalupe roads for reports of a child drowning.

When crews arrived they rushed a one-and-a-half-year-old to a hospital where he died.

Gilbert PD says the boy was found in the home's swimming pool.

Evidence collected at the home suggests the boy got outside through the back doggy door and fell into an unfenced swimming pool.
