With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Pickerington Toddler Dies After Being Pulled From Hot Tub
Authorities say a 2-year-old boy has apparently drowned in a hot tub at a Pickerington condominium complex.
Police in Pickerington say the toddler was found floating face down in the hot tub at Brookview Condominiums at about 6:30 p.m. Monday. First-responders tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead later at a hospital.
Police said the boy’s parents and other adults were at the pool at the complex, which doesn’t have a lifeguard. The hot tub is 3 feet deep and located in a fenced-in area just a few feet from the pool.
The child’s name hasn’t been released.
