Girl, 4, dies after being pulled from pool at Akron home


AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A 4-year-old girl died after she was pulled from a pool in Akron over the weekend, authorities said.

Akron police said emergency responders were called at about 5:30 p.m.. to the residence in the city’s Chapel Hill neighborhood and found the girl unconscious and not breathing.

She was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital but was pronounced dead shortly afterward, police said.

The girl’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Police said an investigation into the death continues.
