STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - Stafford County authorities say an 11-year-old autistic boy has drowned in a retention pond.

 

The sheriff's office says that the boy left his home in the Somerset Landing neighborhood off U.S. 1 unnoticed. His mother found him in the pond in the neighborhood.

 

A man walking his dog saw the mother and helped her get the boy out of the pond. The boy was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

 

The incident occurred Monday. The boy's name hasn't been released.
