A toddler who was found lying face down in a garden pond in Warwickshire died as a result of an accident, a coroner has ruled.
Two-year-old Jack Welch died in hospital in his mother's arms after he was discovered in his grandparents' pond in Hampton Magna on June 23.
Heather Welch, 30, held Jack as his life support machine was switched off, the inquest at Leamington Spa Town Hall was told.
The boy had been playing when he slipped through a security gate in to the garden. He was found in the pond by his grandfather, who called for an ambulance and tried to resuscitate him.
Jack was taken to Warwick Hospital before being transferred to the Leicester Royal Infirmary. A post-mortem examination concluded that he died as a result of drowning.
The death was described by police as a "tragic accident" and was not treated as suspicious.
The inquest was told that doctors did all they could to save Jack, but scans showed that there was a problem with his brain.
Coroner Sean McGovern said: "I offer my condolences to his family, particularly to his parents, Mr and Mrs Welch."
In a statement released by police shortly after Jack's death, Mrs Welch and her husband David, 46, said: "Jack was a fun-loving mischievous, happy-go-lucky little boy, who put a smile on everybody's face."
