A little boy is in critical condition after he fell in a pool in Warren Warren Sunday.

A sergeant working Sunday confirmed an 18-month-old toddler was found in a pool on Aug. 22.

According to police, the incident happened at a home on Bernice Avenue, near Schoenherr and just south of I-696.

"There's a lot of kids in the neighborhood always playing and I see the little kids laying back there when I'm in my pool," said Louise Paul, a neighbor

Police investigating the circumstances had closed the area to allow emergency crews easy access in and out of the neighborhood. The child was taken to an area hospital.
