LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Police say a 6-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a marina near his home.

Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Carey Klain told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1N7tkKH) that the boy's parents reported him missing Sunday afternoon. Shortly after officers began searching, Klain said a neighbor pulled the child from the water and began resuscitation efforts.

Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson said an autopsy was performed Monday, showing the death to be consistent with drowning. He identified the child as Tyler Gibson.

He said the boy was pronounced dead at 4:45 p.m. EDT Sunday at a hospital.

It wasn't clear how long he had been missing. Klain said the boy had been playing with other children earlier in the day, and his parents reported him missing.
