Police say a two year old had been under water for several minutes in the five foot deep end of the pool.  He was pulled out by a teen age boy who was in the pool at the time.  Bystanders assisted in performing CPR on the child, who was conscious and breathing by the time emergency personnel arrived.

The child was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for evaluation, and was treated and released a few days later.

A follow up investigation completed by the Florence Police Department has led to a grand jury indictment on criminal charges for two individuals who had custody of the child at the time of the drowning. 

The mom, Susan Stacy, 31, of Florence, Ky, and a friend of the mother, Dwayne Johnson, 56, of Florence, Ky, were indicted for wanton endangerment. 

Police say Stacy and Johnson were watching the child at the time, and left him unsupervised in the pool for several minutes. The child was not wearing any flotation device of any kind. 

Since being released from the hospital, CFC (Cabinet of Family and Children), has given custody of the child to another family member.
