COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A 17-month-old boy drowned Sunday afternoon in a pool near Cerro Gordo.

Tristen Jamal Stewart was found floating face down in an above-ground pool around 4 p.m. at his home at 90 Jack Yates Dr., according to William Hannah, Columbus County Assistant Coroner.

Hannah said Stewart's grandfather found the boy in the approximately four-foot pool after he went missing from the house.

Adults were performing CPR when an ambulance arrived, according to Hannah, who said the boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Hannah said Stewart's body will be taken to Raleigh for an autopsy.

An official with the Columbus County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for information.
