A 7-year-old boy has died in an apparent drowning at a home in La Habra Heights late Monday night.

The incident was reported about 11:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of Mayapan Road, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Kitchin said.

Emergency crews responded and transported the boy to St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton.

The boy, identified by coroner’s officials as Levi Hardy, was pronounced dead at the hospital just after midnight.

Hardy had apparently drowned in a pool at the home, the coroner’s department stated.

An investigation into what led to Hardy’s death is underway, Kitchin said.
