Investigators said the child, identified as Levi Hughes, wandered out of the house around 7 p.m. Sunday while family members were eating. He was discovered in the pool a few moments later.

Family members attempted to resuscitate the child until paramedics arrived on scene. Hughes was airlifted to USA Medical Center in Mobile where he was pronounced dead.

Deputies said the child was part of a group of 12 adults and 17 children vacationing from Blountville, Tennessee.
