Authorities in western Iowa say a child who was nearly two-years old drowned last night (Sunday) in a backyard swimming pool. According to Council Bluffs police, family members found 23-month-old Jonathan D. Swigart floating in an above-ground, backyard pool, just after nine p.m. Sunday.
After pulling the boy from the water, one of his relatives began C-P-R, but the child was not breathing when rescue crews arrived on the scene. The boy was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The incident is under investigation by members of the Council Bluffs Police Criminal Investigation Division.
