A drowning over the Memorial Day Weekend has claimed the life of a two-year old Gregg County toddler.

Texas Game Wardens and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the drowning which occurred early Sunday morning at a residence north of Longview.

Family members told investigators that the toddler woke up before they did and apparently wandered over to their neighbor’s fenced in yard and fell in the swimming pool.

Efforts to revive the boy were attempted before he was transported to the hospital where he later died.

An autopsy has been ordered.
