A Pitt County family is mourning the loss of its baby boy after officials say he managed to climb into the family's backyard pool.
Officials say the 9-month-old boy died at the Farmville home located on the 2700 block of Stonybrook Drive. An obituary identified the baby as Kolton Moore.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office says the family's 3-year-old found his brother in the above-ground pool Friday. The baby crawled up six steps unnoticed while his father worked in the yard.
The family has since removed the swimming pool from their backyard, which is fenced. No charges are expected to be filed.
The child was buried Tuesday afternoon.
