A 14-month old boy died this morning after he was found in the family’s swimming pool this morning.

Jacob Ebenberg-Carey was discovered this morning in the pool at 35 Kilmer St. by his mother.

Police were called at 7:40 a.m. and the child was rushed to Morton Medical Center in Taunton where he was pronounced dead.

The child apparently slipped out of the home and onto a newly constructed deck leading to the pool when the accident occurred, authorities said.

The death is under investigation by Taunton police and the Bristol County District Attorney’s office.
