Toddler dies after falling in pool

A toddler has died Saturday evening after falling into a pool in the city’s Greenland neighborhood near Mandarin High School, according to the toddler’s mother.

The boy fell in the pool just after 1 p.m. at a home on Collins Creek Drive, police said.

The home was surrounded by a crime scene investigation van, multiple police cruisers and crime scene tape while investigators worked.

News4Jax spoke with a neighbor, Carolina Scorza, who said she doesn’t know much about the people who live in the home, as they just moved in about a week ago.

“I have two grandkids. It’s just so sad,” Scorza said. “I don’t want to be in that situation.”

The child was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries but later died.

Homicide detectives are investigating.
