Assumption Parish deputies say an 8-year-old boy died after falling into an abandoned swimming pool in the 6500 block of Hwy 1, in Belle Rose.

Deputies say Klyund Jones fell into the in-ground swimming pool while trying to get a ball he and his friends were playing with.

First responders and family members searched for the boy for several minutes due to the murky water and debris that accumulated in the pool since the home was demolished because of a fire in 2008. 

Jones was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
