Six-Year-Old DC Girl Drowns in Public Pool

A six-year-old girl who was pulled from a public pool in Northeast Washington DC and was taken to the hospital in critical condition, died a day after the accident, reports say.

An investigation at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in Washington DC seeks to discover exactly what led to the drowning of the girl, whose name has not yet been released.

Reports say that the six-year-old girl had been pulled from the pool unconscious. Emergency crews were called to the center at 1100 Michigan Ave. NE about 2:15 p.m last month, where they found bystanders performing CPR on the girl. Family members were at her side, reports said.

The girl was taken to Children's Hospital about 2:35 p.m., where she was being treated. She reportedly died the next day, and the investigation continues.
