A 2-year-old child has died after being pulled from a backyard pool in Goodyear Thursday evening.

Authorities responded to the area of Pebble Creek Parkway and West Virginia Avenue around 6:30 p.m. after receiving reports of an incident at a home.

A Goodyear fire spokesperson says the young girl was found in the pool and had “advanced life support measures being administered.”

She was taken to the hospital in respiratory arrest and later died, officials said.

Air15 flew over the scene and it does not appear a fence was installed around the pool.

No additional information was immediately available but Goodyear police say detectives are investigating.
