LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 9-year-old has died after he was found floating in a pool in Crescent Hill Saturday afternoon.

Police and EMS were called to Waterleaf way just after 3 p.m. where they found the boy. He was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital. 

Officials say the child has now died. 

We are told the home belongs to former NFL player and current St. Xavier High School football coach Will Wolford. The coach released a statement Sunday evening saying:

"The Wolford family is devastated by this weekend's tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dominique's family as they deal with unimaginable grief."

It is not clear if Wolford was home at the time. Officials are not releasing the boy's identity at this time.
