A 4-year-old boy who drowned this past Monday in the San Diego community of Chula Vista has, at last, been identified.
The Medical Examiner’s office has announced that the body belonged to Jhovan Peralta. According to reports, other swimmers found Peralta floating in the pool and pulled him from the water. They began performing CPR and called for medical help.
An ambulance arrived and took Peralta to Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center where, an hour after his arrival, he was pronounced dead.
Neither officials nor the individuals who found Peralta in the pool have any idea how long he had been in the water before he was found, nor do they know the cause of his accident.
