Walthourville, GA (October 7, 2021) – A deadly drowning incident involving a child was reported last Tuesday afternoon, September 28, in the Liberty County area.
A 2-year-old Walthourville boy died several days later after authorities found him submerged in a backyard pool, authorities say.

Paramedics then airlifted the boy to Memorial Health in Savannah. Doctors pronounced him dead on Saturday morning, October 2.
It’s unclear if the boy’s parents or guardians were with him when the drowning occurred. Police say they will provide more information in the coming days.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim.
