A 2-year-old boy died Sunday night after he was found unresponsive in a swimming pool in the backyard of a home in Union County, officials said.

Emergency workers were called about 6 p.m. to the home of the child’s grandmother on McKinley Street in Linden, according to city Mayor Derek Armstead and Linden police.

Linden police said family members found the child, pulled him from the pool and immediately began CPR.

Paramedics attempted to revive the toddler before transporting him to Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, where he was pronounced dead, Armstead told NJ Advance Media on Monday.

The boy was apparently visiting his grandmother at the time, Armstead said. He didn’t know the child’s primary residence.

“I just know that it’s a tragic event and our heart goes out to the family,” Armstead said. “At this point, all we can do is give the family all our prayers and let them know that if we can help them, we’ll go forward with it.”

The death remained under investigation Monday by the Linden Police Detective Bureau, the Linden Police Juvenile Aid Bureau, and the Union County Homicide Task Force, police said.
