A 2-year-old Clinton boy who fell into his grandparents' pool this week died Thursday morning at East Tennessee Children's Hospital.

Anthony Hampton died at the hospital where he had been treated since the Tuesday morning incident, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Anthony, who would have turned 3 in October, slipped out the back door at the Melton Hill Circle residence, apparently climbed the ladder and fell into the above-ground pool early Tuesday, according to Clinton Assistant Police Chief Vaughn Becker.
