Angelina Co. (KYTX) - A 20 month old East Texas child has passed away after a drowning in an Angelina County home, Sheriff Greg Sanches tells CBS 19.  A 2 year old boy is in Herman Hospital in Houston after he was also found floating in the same pool Saturday. The children were not related.

The call came into the Angelina County Sheriff's Department on Saturday morning at 10:48 a.m. Sheriff Greg Sanches says the father of one of the children went to the store and came home to find the children, Amarie Rodriguez and Ayden Bentley, floating in the pool.

It happened at 2992 Allentown Loop. The children were taken to a local hospital, but then air lifted to Houston because of the severity of their conditions.

Amarie passed away yesterday in a Houston hospital, according to Sheriff Sanches. At last report, Sanches says the 2 year old boy, Ayden Bentley, is reportedly doing somewhat better.

Sanches says the investigation is still ongoing into the incident.
