ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. -- A 3-year-old boy was found dead at the bottom of an abandoned backyard pool Friday afternoon.

Several hours went by between the report that the boy was missing and the discovery of his body.

Deputies say he got in through a hole in the fence. The pool hasn't been used in about two years.

Right now, they say it appears to be just a tragic accident.
