Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit are investigating the near drowning of a 3-year-old boy who was found submerged in the family’s pool in North Redington Beach.

According to detectives, 52-year-old Kimberly Carr was babysitting her 3-year-old grandson Hunter Kelley at her private residence located in North Redington Beach. Hunter reportedly went undetected past a locked door into the family’s swimming pool.

Minutes later, Carr discovered 3-year-old Hunter submerged in the family’s swimming pool. Carr pulled Hunter from the water, immediately started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and began screaming for assistance.

With the assistance of neighbors, 49-year-old Pamela Leszczynski and 49-year-old Joseph Albino called 911 and assisted Carr with CPR. Deputy Cronin who was on routine patrol in the neighborhood heard the initial screams for assistance from Carr, responded and assisted with life-saving measures.

Hunter was transported to the All Children’s Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

The investigation continues.
