A 5-year-old boy died Thursday after being found unresponsive in a swimming pool in an Eagan neighborhood, police said.

Police received a report around 12:30 p.m. of a young child running between homes in the 1600 block of Donegal Court. While checking the area, officers located the child’s mother, who said her 5-year-old son was missing from the 1700 block of Deerwood Drive.

Officers found the boy unresponsive in a pool in the 3900 block of Donegal Way, which is less than half a mile north of the Deerwood address. They administered lifesaving measures on the boy before he was transported by ambulance to a children’s hospital in St. Paul, where he was pronounced dead.
