A toddler drowned in a swimming pool in Lake Jackson.

Lake Jackson police said David Lopez III, 14 months, was found in a pool at his grandparents' home in the 100 block of Sleepy Hollow Drive on Monday.

David lived next door with his parents.

Detectives said they think David may have walked through a gate with a latch that was not working properly and then fell in the pool.

Police said they believe David's death was a horrible accident.
