Drowning - 8YO Boy - Monday, May 24, 2010
On Monday, May 24,2010, at approximately 5:51PM, APSO Dispatcher received a 911 call concerning an 8 year old boy falling into an abandoned swimming pool in the 6500 block of Hwy 1, in Belle Rose, LA.

Responding deputies and Fire Department personnel arrived on the scene within minutes and learned that Klyund Jones 8yoa fell into the in-ground swimming pool while attempting to retrieve a ball that he and his friends were playing with.

First responders and family members were forced to search for the boy for several minutes due to the murky water and debris that accumulated in the pool since the home was demolished because of a fire in October of 2008.

Upon locating the boy, he was rushed by Acadian Ambulance to Assumption Community hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information concerning this matter can contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 985-526-1627 or the Communications Division at 985-369-2912.
