Authorities say a Novi man and his 3-year-old son accidentally drowned in an apartment complex swimming pool northwest of Detroit.

An autopsy was performed Wednesday on 31-year-old Nagavaju Surepalli and Ananth Surepalli.

Police say the child was poolside on a tricycle about 3 p.m. Tuesday when he rode inadvertently into the community pool. Nagavaju Surepalli went into the water after the boy, but was not an experienced swimmer.

Police say the pool has a maximum depth of 5 feet and no lifeguards. No one else was in the pool area at the time.

Nagavaju and Ananth Surepalli lived at the apartment complex.

The case remains under investigation.
