BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 2-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after his father found him at the bottom of a pool at their Tampa Bay area home.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office told local news outlets the father found the boy shortly before noon Monday. The father told investigators he had been helping his daughter with a swimming suit just before seeing his son.

The investigation is ongoing.
