KLEIN, Texas – A 4-year-old boy has died after he was found at the bottom of a crowded swimming pool on Memorial Day.

Deputies said Cody Pennington, Jr. was pulled from a swimming pool Monday afternoon at an apartment complex in the 7300 block of Spring Cypress Road in the Klein area

The boy's parents were looking for him, but couldn't find him until other children in the pool began to scream, according to investigators.

He was not breathing when he was pulled from the water, investigators said.

A Good Samaritan performed CPR before medics arrived. Emergency crews also tried to revive the boy several times before rushing him to the hospital.

The boy was taken to Texas Children's Hospital in The Woodlands, where he passed away late Monday night, deputies said.
