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.
