3-year-old drowns in Clermont County

Posted by Trina Edwards - email

MONROE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Clermont County Sheriff's Department is looking into what led to the drowning of a 3-year-old boy in Monroe Township.

Police responded to a home in the 1400 block of Frank Willis Road around 9 p.m. Sunday night after Evan James Dell, 3, of Wilmington, was found unresponsive in a pool.

Police say Evan and his parents, Tina and Greg Dell, were visiting Evan's grandparents, who owned the home where the incident took place.

On Sunday, the grandparents hosted a party for a family friend who had just returned home from military training. Several children, including Evan, were swimming under adult supervision in the above ground pool. The pool had been cleared and the swimming ended for the children and they were off playing in other areas of the yard. Police say it appears that at some point, Evan went back to the pool and was found later by an adult.

CPR was administered by some individuals at the scene, but Evan was pronounced dead before he could be transported to the hospital.
