Police said a Newport toddler drowned in a pool Saturday afternoon.
Officers found Hunter Frazier, 3, lying unconscious near a pool when they arrived at a home on Cambridge Drive shortly before 3:00 p.m.
Adult witnesses at the home said Hunter was playing outside, but disappeared when they stepped inside for a moment. They later found him floating in the pool and tried to rescue him. Officials said his mother was in the basement when the incident occurred.
Crews drove the toddler to Newport Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
