Boone County Boy Dies in Submerged Vehicle

A tragic accident claimed the life of a 5-year-old boy in Florence, Kentucky Friday, after being submerged in a vehicle.

Reports are the family was about to take a quick trip, and had their two children and a dog in the vehicle while they were still in the house. The car somehow rolled down the driveway and ended up in a pond in the back yard. It isn't clear at this time why the car was able to roll down the driveway.

It was 30 minutes before rescue units arrived at the scene and were able to pull the young boy out of the water.

An ambulance took him to Cincinnati Children's Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The sister of the boy and dog were able to escape before the car entered into the pond.
