It was a close call Saturday for a Brazos County family enjoying the extended Thanksgiving weekend.

It happened in the 11000 block of Gold Nugget just off Texas 30.

A two-year-old boy playing with other children accidentally slipped into a pond and disappeared under the water.

Sheriff's investigators say the boy was under for about four minutes. Family members performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

The boy was taken to College Station Medical Center where doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

Authorities say no neglect was involved and are calling the incident a close call.
