TWO people are believed to have drowned at a pool party at the home of ex-MLB star Carl Crawford.
One of the victims is believed to have been a young boy, aged around five years old.
The second victim is thought to be a woman who tried to save the child, TMZ reported.
The incident is believed to have happened at Crawford’s Houston home on Saturday.
Crawford, now a record label chief, is thought to have been hosting a small gathering of six people.
According to TMZ, the little boy wandered off and fell into the swimming pool.
The woman is believed to have gone into the water to try to save the boy but tragically, both drowned.
Both Crawford and paramedics tried in vain to revive the victims at the scene.
KHOU confirmed a drowning happened at a Houston home on Saturday afternoon, but TMZ Sports was the first to identify the house as Crawford’s.
It was reported by KHOU that the woman and boy died at the hospital, but TMZ said they died at the scene.
Footage recorded by the local station appears to show Crawford walking outside his house to speak to cops.
