Pickerington Toddler Dies After Being Pulled From Hot Tub

Authorities say a 2-year-old boy has apparently drowned in a hot tub at a Pickerington condominium complex. Police in Pickerington say the toddler was found floating face down in the hot tub at Brookview Condominiums at about 6:30 p.m. Monday. First-responders tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead later at a hospital. Police said the boy's parents and other adults were at the pool at the complex, which doesn't have a lifeguard. The hot tub is 3 feet deep and located in a fenced-in area just a few feet from the pool. The child's name hasn't been released.
