Johannesburg - A 13-month-old baby drowned in a pool at a day care centre in Pretoria Gardens on Monday, Gauteng emergency workers said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Trevor Putterill said paramedics found the child in cardiac arrest on arrival at the scene and attempted to resuscitate him.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital but declared dead on arrival there.

Putterill said there was apparently no sign of fencing around the pool or netting over it.
