Delaware State Police are investigating after a boy was found unresponsive in a pool at a home in Newark.
Troopers say about 8:35 a.m. Wednesday, a neighbor saw a 1-year-old boy lying in about 18 inches of water in the cover of an in-ground pool. Police say the neighbor notified the 16- and 13-year-old who were caring for the child, and called 911.
New Castle County Paramedics who went to the home say the child did not have a pulse and was not breathing when they arrived.

This story has been corrected to show that the victim is 1 year old, not around 4 years old.
