A one year-old baby girl was found drowning in the family pool by her nine-year-old sister Friday evening, said police.
Coral Springs Fire Rescue received the call at 6:44 p.m. to the 10900 block of NW 55th St that a child had drowned. According to Coral Springs Police Capt. Brad McKeone, when they arrived on the scene at 6:48 p.m., the baby was in the kitchen with the family after being found by her sister and was in code blue – or cardiopulmonary arrest. They began to resuscitate her, and at one point there was a pulse. First transported to Broward Health Coral Springs, she was then later transferred to Broward General.
McKeone said that the home had a baby fence around the pool area, however, investigators do not know if there was a break in the fence which allowed the baby to get into the pool.
At this time, they are still performing tests and treatments. The baby has not regained consciousness yet.
