PHOENIX -- A 2-year-old boy died after falling into a backyard swimming pool at a home on the northern outskirts of the Phoenix metro area.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said the child's mother found him unresponsive at a pool at the family home in Anthem late Thursday and that he apparently had been in the water for about five minutes.

The boy was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name was not released.
