EDWARDSVILLE, Kan. -- Edwardsville Police are investigating a drowning at a neighborhood pool. Police and fire crews responded to the pool around 1 p.m. on Saturday near 105th Street & Edge Hill Road.

Police say a three-year-old boy wandered from his home and into the family's pool. The family recently adopted the boy. Officers say this incident is a reminder for people to watch their children closely.

"In the summer time when people open their pools, it reminds us to all keep an eye on their children," said Det. Ken Russell. "They can wander off quickly and disappear and we want to come out on anymore of these accidents."

The family is currently awaiting an autopsy.
