Young Girl Drowns In Home Swimming Pool

GALESBURG (AP) – A young girl has died after falling into a home swimming pool in southwestern Michigan.

WOOD-TV and the Kalamazoo Gazette report the preschool age girl was unresponsive Sunday evening after being pulled out of the pool in the Kalamazoo County community of Galesburg. She was taken to a local hospital but couldn’t be revived.

Her name and age weren’t released.

Authorities say they responded to a 911 call. It wasn’t clear how she fell into the in-ground, uncovered pool or how long she had been in it.

Police said at least one parent was home at the time of the drowning.
