MESA, Ariz. -- Firefighters say a boy drowned while playing with other kids in a Mesa swimming pool.

Chenery said the toddler was playing in a hot tub but then somehow ended up in the pool.

Authorities said family members started CPR but the boy didn't have a pulse when firefighters arrived.

The child was pronounced dead at a hospital.
