A 4-year-old boy drowned during a birthday party Saturday at a Rutherford County home.
Evan Sayvone was transported to St. Thomas Hospital where he died a short time later.
Detective Lt. Todd Sparks said in a release that Evan somehow got outside during the party and managed to get around the pool’s decking and gate.
A short time later, another child found the four-year-old in the water.
A nearby nurse practitioner immediately started CPR, but Evan passed away.
“It was just a horrible accident,” Lt. Sparks said.
Further details were not immediately known.
