An Arizona family is in mourning after a toddler fell into a filthy pool and died. 

During a family function, the 14-month-old fell into the pool, which was not enclosed by a fence

According to KTTV, witnesses said they had no idea he'd even gone in because the water was so filthy. They also did not know how long he had been under. 

A relative pulled him out and performed CPR before first responders arrived.

"You never actually think it's going to happen next door to you," a neighbor told AZFamily.

He was taken to a nearby Phoenix-area hospital, where he later died. 

Fire officials said the incident serves as a reminder to keep your pool clean outside of summer.
