Bystanders, deputies and paramedics all attempted to save Mekhi Davon Ivy’s life after he was discovered in the pool.
Emergency crews responded to the Sunningdale neighborhood around 2 p.m. Saturday.
Ivy was taken to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids. A Kent County medical examiner informed police Sunday afternoon that the child had died, Keuning said.
The incident is still under investigation.
A GoFundMe page is set up in the child's name to help the family cover funeral costs.
Police earlier said the child was 7 years old. They corrected the information.
