A four year old boy has died after an accident at a neighborhood pool in West Chatham County on this July 4th holiday.

Police were called to the pool at “Godley Park” just after 2pm Friday afternoon.  A witness tells WSAV that a group of children was running and jumping into the pool at the time and that he might have struck his head, but the incident is still under investigation.  Attempts to revive the child with CPR failed and the boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police have not released the child’s name at this time.  They say his mother was at the pool with him at the time of the accident.  A number of other adults were also apparently present at the time.

This evening the Godley Park homeowners association said that it is closing the pool for the time being and will be following up with the proper authorities to ensure all protocols have been met before it reopens.
