PORTER RANCH, Calif. – A four-year-old twin boy has died after being pulled unresponsive from a backyard swimming pool in Porter Ranch.
The other boy remains in critical condition.
Paramedics were sent to the 10000 block of Des Moines Avenue, just east of Tampa Avenue north of Devonshire Street, about 10:35 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department and the Los Angeles Police Department.
