A 4-year-old boy died the other day in a Westborough apartment complex in a murky swimming pool. The child had been missing for several hours.


The pool, surrounded by a chain-link fence that is about six feet tall, had not yet opened for the summer, according to the residents. The pool had been uncovered about one week prior to the incident so crews could start treating and cleaning processes. Police had been out earlier looking for the boy in the woods, empty apartments, and bushes nearby.
