3-year-old boy dies after being found in backyard pool and identified

A 3-year-old boy who died after he and his twin were found unconscious Friday morning in the backyard pool of a Porter Ranch home has been identified.

Kai Bernabe died in hospital, three months before his fourth birthday, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed. The boys were originally reported as 4 years old.

Fire officials said the boys’ parents found them in the pool, pulled them out of the water, and performed CPR with the guidance of LA Fire Department dispatchers through phone.

According to the Fire Department, firefighters and first responders arrived at the home along a dead end on Des Moines Avenue just after 10:30 a.m.

“The paramedics have been working hard to provide every opportunity possible for these children,” LAFD Captain Eric Scott told reporters Friday.

The children were transferred to a regional pediatric trauma center.

“Tragically,” Scott said, “one of those boys was pronounced dead at the hospital.”

Authorities had no update on the second child’s condition as of Saturday night.

Television footage of the Porter Ranch property shows a stately farmhouse overlooking a large pool and patio area.

Captain Kelly Muniz of the Los Angeles Police Department told reporters on Friday: “There is nothing to point to anything but a tragic accident here.

Members of the mayor’s Crisis Response Team were sent to the home to assist family and neighbors.
