A 2-year-old child was taken to Golisano Children’s Hospital after being pulled from a pool in Cape Coral Monday morning.

According to Cape Coral Police, the child went missing from a home on SW 15th Avenue and was later found behind a home the next street over, on SW 14th Place.

The child was pulled from a pool that appears to be under construction.

In a report released by police, they say the child’s family, who was visiting for Christmas from Palm Bay, was packing their car up and took a quick phone call when their child likely made its way over to the pool.

Police have tape up around part of the property during the investigation.

The property is owned by Lisi Carlos, who owns a business that helps build fences around pools to keep children safe.

The 2-year-old was breathing on its own before it was taken to the hospital. The current condition of the child is unknown.
