An 8-year old boy was airlifted to the hospital after he was found floating in a pool. 

Limestone County Sheriff's deputies say the boy was in the Legacy Grove community pool on Summerfield Drive. 

Limestone County Schools Superintendent Tom Sisk said Thursday that he had been told the boy died, but said Friday a language barrier had led to some communication issues. The boy was still on life support Friday afternoon, Sisk said.
