PHILADELPHIA -

A little boy, found underwater at a Philadelphia swimming pool, has died.

Seven-year old Jabriel O'Connor had gone swimming with a summer camp program last Thursday at the Cobbs Creek Recreational Center.

One of the camp counselors found him at the bottom of the pool. He was taken to the hospital, but yesterday, he passed away.

In a statement, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said, "The city will continue to provide support services to Jabriel's family, the camp staff, city employees and community members affected by this tragedy. It is my hope that they can find strength and comfort from the support of their loved ones and the entire Philadelphia community at this difficult time."
