3-year-old drowns at Union Beach home

Authorities say a 3-year-old boy drowned Monday afternoon in his family's Union Beach swimming pool.

Jacob Henninger got out of his family's Dibling Street house through a back window and fell into the pool, authorities say.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office is conducting an investigation, but says the child's death appears to be a "terrible accident."
