Child dead after falling into water near a Mesa apartment complex, PD says

A six-year-old boy died after falling into "water surrounding an apartment complex" in Mesa on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

At around 1:15 p.m. on June 11, Mesa Police officers responded to the area near Baseline and Power roads for a report of a child in the water.

It was workers at the apartment complex who noticed the young boy and pulled him out.

"Upon arrival, officers found that the child had been pulled from the water and someone was administering CPR. Officers took over CPR until Fire and Medical personnel arrived and continued the life-saving measures," police said.

The child was taken to the hospital but around 2 p.m., the child died.

The parents of the child live here at the property, and it’s unclear where they were when this happened.

"As it looks so far, it just looks to be a tragic accident. Our prayers are going out to the family. This is also a big reminder to always keep an eye on your kids, especially around water," Mesa Police Det. Richard Encinas said.

The Mesa Police Department is investigating this incident.

Mesa PD says this marks the 10th water-related incident in Mesa this year, and the fourth fatality.
