BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – Authorities are investigating after a 6-year-old girl apparently drowned at a home in Bloomfield Township.

The girl was reportedly found floating in an indoor pool later Thursday night at a home on Morningside Way, off of Long Lake Road west of Telegraph Road.

Officers found family members performing CPR on the child, identified as the homeowner’s granddaughter. The girl was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police believe the girl got into the indoor pool alone and drowned. It’s not clear how long she was there before her family found her. The child’s name was not immediately released.

An autopsy is expected later Friday.
