A 2-year-old boy drowned Monday evening in his family's swimming pool in Canonsburg.
Blake M. Metzger was found unresponsive by his grandmother around 5:50 p.m. in an above-ground pool on Richland Avenue, Washington County coroner Tim Warco said.
Right before the boy drowned, a family member had suffered a medical emergency at the home and others there immediately assisted that person, Mr. Warco said. After a few minutes, the boy's grandmother looked for Blake and found him at the bottom of the pool, he said.
"Washington County 911 Center received two calls within five minutes for a medical emergency at the residence," he said.
The boy was transported to Canonsburg General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:46 p.m., Mr. Warco said.
The manner of the toddler's death is pending investigation, he said. Canonsburg police are investigating.
