A 21-month-old toddler drowned in Spanaway Lake tonight after he climbed out of his house on the water, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies were called to the 17100 block of 6th Avenue Court South at 7:15 p.m.

The boy was found by his 9-year-old brother, who screamed for help, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

A neighbor nearby with a rowboat started CPR, which crews continued when they arrived, but the boy later died at St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood about 8 :15 p.m., Troyer said.
