Posted: Updated:

RAMONA (CNS) - A 4-year-old boy in the Ramona section of San Diego County was killed when he wandered into a neighbor's backyard and somehow got into the pool and drowned, a sheriff's lieutenant said Sunday.

The homeowner in the 16000 block of Swartz Canyon Road was alerted to the presence of the boy in her backyard when she heard her dogs barking, said San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. John Maryon.

The woman called 911 at 3:33 p.m. Saturday and was given instructions on how to perform CPR by the dispatcher, Maryon said. Arriving paramedics attempted to resuscitate the child.

The child was then airlifted to Rady Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Sheriff's homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the drowning to call them at (858) 974-2321.
