LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The deaths of two young boys found unresponsive in a backyard in a swimming pool was not the result of foul play.

With police cars clearing a route to downtown, the boys were rushed to Norton Children’s Hospital by EMS. Attempts to save them were unsuccessful.

The names of the boys have not been released by the Jefferson County Coroners Office.
