GLENDALE — A second child has died after two boys were pulled from a swimming pool Friday evening near 83rd Avenue and Missouri.

Glendale Fire officials say 3 and 4-year-old brothers were playing in the backyard when one of them fell into the swimming pool.

Investigators believe the second child went into the water to save his brother.

On Saturday, officials announced one of the boys died at a hospital and two days later on Monday police said the second boy died.

When emergency crews arrived at the location, the parents were already performing CPR on the boys.

Officials say that there was not a fence around the pool.

This is the third time a child was pulled from a pool in the Valley Friday.
