A 2-year-old boy drowned in a pond in the backyard of a Dunnellon home on Friday.

According to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office, the boy's mother and her boyfriend were outside around 1:30 p.m. at a home on W. Dunedin Road when the toddler, Ethan Adams, walked away and wandered into the backyard.

When the couple noticed the boy was missing, they went into the backyard and found him floating in the pond.

Once officials arrived, they performed CPR on the boy. He was transported to Seven Rivers Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Deputies said nothing appears suspicious at this time.
