It's a story that is unfortunately heard way too often in the Las Vegas valley. A 3-year-old child fell into a pool at 4774 El Canasta Way, near Mountain Vista Street and Tropicana Avenue, on Wednesday night.

The child was found around 7:40 p.m. and transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead just after 8 p.m. The circumstances around his drowning death are still under investigation.

The Clark County coroner will release name of child and official cause of death.
