A 3-year-old girl died Saturday after being found in a backyard swimming pool.

Northwest Fire District firefighters and paramedics received a call around midnight in the 8200 Block of North Equator Loop, indicating a small child was found in the backyard swimming pool, Capt. Adam Goldberg.

CPR was given to the child until Northwest Fire crews arrived. The girl was then transported to a local hospital, where efforts to revive her were unsuccessful.

The parents of child were at home for a gathering and there were a number of adults and older children in the backyard of the incident, Goldberg said.

The child was last seen 15 minutes before being discovered in the pool. The pool did not have any fence or barriers around it, he said.
