4-Year-Old Girl Dies After Being Pulled From A Pool

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A 4-year-old girl died after she was pulled from a pool in Akron over the weekend, authorities said.

Akron police said emergency responders were called at about 5:30 p.m.. Saturday to the residence in the city's Chapel Hill neighborhood and found the girl unconscious and not breathing.

She was taken to Akron Children's Hospital but was pronounced dead shortly afterward, police said.

Investigators said residents of the home were having a family gathering and people had been in and out of the above-ground pool throughout the day. The girl had also been swimming during the day before she was found face-down in the pool that evening, police said.

The girl's name wasn't immediately released. Police said an investigation into the death continues.
