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.
