MESA, AZ - Mesa police say a 3-year-old girl died Sunday after falling into a backyard pool.
Police spokesman Tony Landato said the girl was found at the bottom of the pool during a BBQ at a home near Southern and Alma School.
Landato said the girl was visiting the home with her parents. According to police, the 3-year-old was left unsupervised by adults when she fell into the pool.
CPR was performed on the girl before rescue crews arrived. The child was taken to a local hospital where she later died.
Landato said the investigation is ongoing, but criminal charges are unlikely.
Authorities said this is the second child to drown in two days. A 5-year-old boy died after slipping into a backyard pool during a party in Buckeye Saturday afternoon.
