LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - The Orange County Sheriff's Office says a 13-year-old boy has died after being pulled from a Disney resort swimming pool over the weekend.

Officials say Anthony Johnson died Tuesday at an Orlando hospital. He had been swimming with his family Sunday evening at Disney's Pop Century Resort. The family lost sight of him and a cousin spotted him at the bottom of the pool after several minutes.

Deputies report that the boy's father performed CPR until paramedics arrived. He was taken to an Orlando area hospital, where he died.

The family was visiting from Missouri.

In a statement, Disney officials said they're saddened by the child's death and have reached out to his family to offer "care and assistance."
