HOUSTON -

A 7-year-old boy nearly drowned in a pool at a northwest Houston apartment complex on Thursday.

Houston police said the boy was found in the pool at the Oakwood Gardens Apartments on Antoine near West Tidwell about 2 p.m.

The boy was given CPR at the scene and then rushed to Texas Children's Hospital.

The pool at the complex was closed. It was gated and there were signs all over saying the pool was closed.

The boy, his mother and three siblings jumped the gate to get to the pool, police said.

The boy dove into the pool and hit his head, investigators said.

The boy's name has not been released.
