A 9-month-old boy who had fallen into a backyard family swimming pool on Sunday has died.

The child, who wandered away from adults during a family function at a home in the 1600 block of East Gable during the 4th of July holiday, was pronounced dead late Monday, according to Detective Steven Berry, a Mesa police spokesman, and Forrest Smith, a Mesa fire spokesman.

The pool did not have a fence around it, according to Berry.
