A child drowned Saturday evening in a Mission Viejo community pool, according to authorities.
The parents and friends of the 1-year-old, whose name and gender have not been released, were visiting Sierra Recreation and Fitness Center when the child drowned around 6 p.m., said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Tony Bommarito.
Paramedics attempted to revive the child but were unsuccessful, Bommarito said. Lifeguards were on scene.
