A north Harris County community is mourning after the drowning of a 1-year-old baby boy. It happened about 5:00 p.m. Friday in the 20800 block of Auguswood Lane, near the intersection of Woodcreek Lane and Aldine Westfield Road.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the child drowned in the backyard pool of a two-story home. EMS rushed the baby to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Neighbor Rogelio Martinez said he believes the victim is the grandchild of the couple that owns the home where the drowning occurred.
"You can’t have enough eyes to watch over your children. I feel so bad for them and the entire family,” said Martinez.
At this time no charges have been filed.
The drowning is under investigation.
