SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ - Authorities say a 1-year-old girl has died after she was found in a swimming pool Tuesday afternoon in San Tan Valley.
Colin Williams with the Rural/Metro Fire Department said the girl was in the swimming pool for an unknown amount of time at a home near Skyline Drive and Gary Road.
Authorities said the backdoor to the house was left open and the child went in the backyard and fell into the pool.
The grandmother came out a short time later and discovered her granddaughter still in the pool. The grandmother jumped into the pool, pulled the child out and performed CPR on her until emergency crews arrived.
The child was transported to a local hospital and then transported by air ambulance to Cardon Children’s Hospital in Mesa where she later died.
The name of the child hasn't been released yet.
