Authorities said a 3-year-old boy died Tuesday after being pulled from the bottom of a Chandler pool over the weekend.

Chandler Fire Chief Thomas Dwiggins said the child passed away Tuesday morning. The child's name was not released.

He said the boy was attending a birthday party Sunday at a home near McQueen and Chandler Height Roads where there were a lot of children and adults.

The boy was found at the bottom of the pool around 4:30 p.m. as the party was winding down. He was transported to the hospital Sunday in critical condition.

"What we didn't have [at the party] was that eye-to-eye supervision, where somebody is always watching the kids in there,” Dwiggins said.
