Seminole toddler found drowned in family pool

SEMINOLE — A 1-1/2 year-old Seminole boy accidentally drowned in his family's pool, Pinellas sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

Dominick Lawrence was found in the water in the 8000 block of Seminole Boulevard at about 10 a.m., deputies said. Dominick's family began looking for him after his 8-year-old sister awoke and could not find him, deputies said. When they discovered him in the pool, Dominick was unresponsive. His parents tried CPR, but were unsuccessful. Dominick was pronounced dead at Largo Medical Center, deputies said.

The pool had a chain link fence around it, but the latch was not secure, investigators found. Deputies are continuing their investigation but said it appears that no charges will be filed.
