A 10-year-old University Park boy apparently drowned Friday afternoon at an apartment complex in south suburban Steger, officials said.
Anthony Perkins, of the 700 block of Spring Court in University Park, was pronounced dead at 3:31 p.m. at Saint James Hospital and Health Centers in Chicago Heights, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The spokesman said it appears the youth drowned, but the cause of death won't be announced until after an autopsy scheduled for Sunday.
The medical examiner's office said the drowning occurred at 316 West Steger Rd. Information as to where the boy actually drowned was not available, but the apartment complex at that address was listed online as having a pool.
A spokesman for the Steger Police Department was not available for comment this afternoon.
