The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a two year old child who drowned in a swimming pool. The child, Kevin Connor Moran (10-6-2000), was playing in the back yard of his family's residence at 612 Spanish Moss Drive, Destin, when he apparently fell into the pool, a few minutes after 6:00 this evening (Tuesday evening).

The child's mother, Janice Nicole Moran, age 33, who was in the back yard at the time talking on the telephone, did not see the child enter the water. When she saw the child on the bottom of the pool in the shallow end, she drove him to the nearby Destin Urgent Care Center, where CPR was initiated. The boy was transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital in south Walton County, where he was pronounced dead at 7:46 Monday evening.
