WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Police have released the name of the 18-month-old boy who drowned in his family’s aboveground swimming pool over the weekend.
Wrentham Police Chief Bill McGrath said the death of Angelo Nicoloro on Saturday was a tragic accident.
He tells The Sun Chronicle the pool installed two weeks ago was equipped with a retractable ladder.
Family members were performing CPR when police responded to a 911 call from the home at about 8 p.m. Saturday.
The boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The chief says there was a large gathering at the home at the time.
