A 15-month-old boy has died from injuries suffered when he fell into a swimming pool three weeks ago in Friendship.

A celebration of the life of 15-month-old Rocco Perfetto is scheduled Wednesday evening at the First Baptist Church in Waldoboro.

The accident occurred Jan. 7 at the family’s home in Friendship.

Rocco was found unresponsive in the pool after he somehow got through a gate and a door. His parents provided life-saving care until public safety crews arrived.

The toddler was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland by a LifeFlight helicopter.

He spent his final days at the Sussman House in Rockport surrounded by his family.
