DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 2-year-old boy is dead after falling into a retention pond behind his house in Daytona Beach.

Police say the child was playing near the water with a sibling on Monday. They were apparently throwing toys into the water when Clayton Bland fell in. No one knows how long he was submerged.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( ) reports neighbor Rhonda Moore jumped into the water and grabbed the child. She began giving him CPR. The child was taken to the hospital, where he died a short time later.

The Department of Children and Families was called to the scene. They will investigate the circumstances of the boy's death. It wasn't clear whether charges would be filed.
