CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - Police say a 14-month-old boy has drowned in a swimming pool at his home in Claremore.

Police say the boy apparently sneaked outside the home Wednesday and either fell or jumped into the family pool.

Police Chief Stan Brown told reporters that the boy's mother was preparing to go to a bus stop and pick up another child when she realized the child was missing and found him in the pool.

Brown says the child was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No names have been released.
