LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A 9-year-old boy who was pulled from the bottom of swimming pool in an upscale Louisville neighborhood has died.

The Courier Journal reports that Louisville Metro Police said the child died Sunday at Kosair Children's Hospital.

Rescue workers were called to the home in the Crescent Hill area about 3 p.m. on Saturday. The incident reportedly occurred at the home belonging to St. Xavier High School football coach Will Wolford, a former NFL player.

Wolford released an email statement through a representative that said his family is devastated by the tragedy and his thoughts and prayers are with the boy's family.

Police have not identified the victim. Wolford's statement said the child's name was Dominique. Wolford's family representative did not return phone calls seeking further comment.
