Two separate swimming pool accidents in Riverside County have left one toddler dead and another critically injured. Zachary Gordon Nahsohn, 2, of Murrieta, died June 4, just a few days after he was found floating in a backyard hot tub in Murrieta. On the same day, June 4, 2013, another 2-year-old girl in Murrieta was in critical condition, a day after she was found in a backyard pool. Police officials arrived at the home and began performing CPR.

The child was in full cardiac arrest, but regained a pulse in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. She remains in critical condition. Officials say the girl was found in the pool after a parent lost sight of her. In Zachary’s case, the boy had been playing in the hot tub with other children during a party at the family’s home when an adult noticed him floating facedown in the water. He was taken to a regional hospital where he died.
