PHOENIX — Detectives are investigating the death of a 2-year-old boy who was found in a backyard jacuzzi on Saturday in west Phoenix, authorities said.

Officers and fire personnel arrived to the home near 59th Avenue and Thomas Road around 1:15 p.m., where they found the child’s family giving CPR to the 2-year-old, identified as Axiel Marquez.

Fire personnel took him to a hospital, but Marquez did not survive his injuries and was pronounced dead.

This is an ongoing investigation. Detectives currently believe it was a tragic accident, as there is nothing indicating foul play, Sgt. Mayra Reeson of Phoenix PD said.
