The boy was pulled from the Koi fish pond on Sunday morning and rushed to the hospital.
A spokeswoman for the Middlesex district attorney’s office told WBZ-TV he passed away Tuesday.
His name was not released.
An investigation continues, but the D.A.’s office said they believe it was a tragic accident.
Sources told WBZ last weekend that the little boy’s father was diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago.
Neighbors said the 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.
