This 10-month-old in Littleton was hospitalized.

He was found unresponsive in the pond at his home on Harvard Road.

Firefighters pulled him from the water and he was sent by ambulance to Emerson Hospital. The child was later transferred to Mass. General Hospital, where he is in serious condition.

Neighbors said his family recently moved into the home and the fish pond was installed by previous owners. The pond is about four feet wide and two feet deep.

There were several children’s toys lying near the pond Sunday morning.

“I raised two of my own [children] successfully, but they’re attracted to anything that’s new and different,” said Alex McCurdy, who lives next door.

McCurdy described his neighbors’ two young children as active. He says they often play in the yard with their parents and visiting grandparents.

Henry Whitcomb lives across the street and describes the boy’s family as great neighbors.

“I see the dad out mowing the lawn and wave hello when I’m walking the dogs,” said Whitcomb.

The Middlesex County District Attorney’s office is investigating, but says the incident appears to be an accident.

“It’s a terrible tragedy. [I] hate to see things like this happen, even if it works out for the best,” said McCurdy.

Sources say the little boy’s father was diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago.
