Police in Waterbury said the 2-year-old boy pulled from a pool last week has died.
Jason Melendez, 2, was pulled form the backyard pool on Wednesday.
Police said a number of families were enjoying the hot day by taking a dip in the pool, and once everyone got out, dried off and went back inside the home, the boy may have snuck back outside.
Police said the Melendez's parents noticed he wasn't playing with the other children in the home, and that's when they found him in the pool.
The death has been ruled accidental.
