PHOENIX -- A 1-year-old boy that found floating in a Phoenix canal last month has died, police said.

Gabriel Cordova was found floating face down in the canal near 23rd Avenue and Indian School.

"He was on the north side of the canal floating face down," said Phoenix Fire Capt. Dorian Jackson. "He came underneath Indian School and was pulled out of the water by a [police] officer on the south side of the canal."

When police and fire arrived, the Cordova's family was near the canal.

A Phoenix police officer pulled Cordova out of the canal.

It is unknown how Cordova ended up in the canal. Police are investigating.
