6-Year Old Girl Drowns At Public Pool

Authorities are investigating the drowning death of a 6-year old girl at a public North Carolina pool.

Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that paramedics were called to the Kimberly Park pool in Winston-Salem Friday afternoon.

They performed CPR on her until paramedics arrived but could not revive her.

The girl was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her name has not been released.

Police say the girl was part of a group from the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.

The pool was shut down for the rest of the day Friday and was set to reopen Saturday afternoon.
