A 3-year-old child remained in critical condition at a Charlotte hospital Monday after being found “unresponsive” in a Gaston County pool over the weekend, according to Gaston County Police.

The child’s name and gender were not released by police.

However, the Gaston Gazette identified the boy as Grayson Brannon and reported he was pulled from the water by his father, Justin Brannon.

Gaston County Police say the child was found around 11:20 am Saturday in a backyard pool at 1016 Holly Hills Drive, according to a release. The home is southwest of Gastonia, near Crowders Mountain State park.

“Immediate treatment began and the child was transported to CaroMont Regional Medical Center,” officials said in the release.

“Later, the child was transferred to Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC. As of early Monday morning, the child is listed in critical condition.”

An investigation of the incident is underway, police said.
