Kentucky State Police says a two-year-old child drowned in Webster County.

On Tuesday evening, police received a call from the Hopkins County Coroner in reference to a two-year-old that had been transported to the Regional Medical Center in Madisonville.

Police say the child had been found unresponsive in a swimming pool at 410 Highland Avenue in Providence. The coroner pronounced the child, Hayden Hubbard, dead.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Hayden was left unattended for a short time, and police say it appears the child climbed the ladder to the above-ground pool and fell in.  Foul play is not suspected.  An autopsy is scheduled at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville.
