Girl Drowns in Backyard Swimming Pool

A Pollok girl is dead after drowning in her family's backyard pool. Paramedics tried to resuscitate the 11-year-old, but she died Thursday at a local hospital.

Investigators said her brother found her floating in the pool off Laura Avenue. They believe the girl drowned accidentally after being trapped underneath a pool cover that was partially in the pool.

The child's name is not being released.
