It's a tragic night for one Central El Paso family as a two-year-old girl drowns at a swimming pool. It all happened just after 5:30 p.m. on the 2800 block of Idalia. Police say the two-year-old was found in the family's pool.
Officers tell us the little girl was playing the backyard with a group of other children. When the family was gathering up the kids, the two-year-old couldn't be found, then someone discovered her in the pool.
Moments later emergency crews were on the scene. They tried reviving the little girl before rushing her to the hospital, where she later died.
Investigators are conducting an investigation into the case. But they say that is standard procedure in any child death.
