Lakeland Police say an 11-month-old boy drowned in a pool at a home in the 4700 block of Puritan Lane Friday.

According to police, the child, left unattended, went outside through an open door and fell into the swimming pool.

At least four adults were at the home during the incident.

The 17-year-old mother was in another room at the time. The child's 18-year-old father was watching his son, Galvin Paul.

During that time, the friend left to use the restroom.

When the father returned, he could not find the child.

They later found him in the swimming pool.

Police say the father and his friend called 9-1-1 and attempted CPR.

Galvin was taken to Lakeland Regional Hospital where he died a short time later.

Police are still investigating.
