A two-year-old boy is dead following a drowning at a home in Southeast Wichita. 

Police say they were called to a home in the 22-hundred block of South Linden around 11:30 Saturday morning.

The boy's father found him unresponsive in a pool and managed to pull him out and started life-saving measures, but was unsuccessful in recessitating the boy. In a news release, officer Charley Davidson says the boy and his parents were temporarily staying at the home, when the boy crawled through a doggy door and fell into the pool.

The investigation into the incident continues.
