MESA, AZ — Authorities say a young girl has died after being pulled from a pool at a home in Mesa Sunday afternoon.

Just after 4 p.m., a 3-year-old girl was pulled from a pool and not breathing at a home near Ellsworth and Ray roads.

An investigation revealed that the young girl was swimming with a swimming vest among several other children in the pool.

At one point, all the adults were inside the house and when they came out, they realized the 3-year-old girl missing.

Her swimming vest was reportedly on the deck by the pool.

Police said the girl was found at the bottom of the pool and was brought to the surface.

Crews began life-saving measures before the child was taken to the hospital. Officials later pronounced her dead.

No charges have been filed, according to police, and the incident remains under investigation.

This is the second of three drowning calls involving a child that occurred on Sunday.

Fire officials say a boy is in extremely critical condition after being pulled from the bottom of a pool in north Phoenix and a 10-month-old was in critical condition following a near drowning in Mesa.
