A four-year-old girl from Florida passed away a few days after another child found her unconscious in a pool on Monday.


On Thursday, a four-year-old girl from Florida passed away after she was found unresponsive in a pool a few days earlier on Monday, May 10, 2021. Another young child helped get her out of the pool.

Pembroke Pines Police Department released a media release with the details of the accident shortly after the accident. The family had been at the Chapel Trail Community along Northwest 18th Street.

They had been at the location to possibly rehome a dog. The family began searching for her when they noticed she was missing. They eventually found her unconscious in a pool.

An eight-year-old boy jumped into the pool and helped pull her out of the water. Residences performed CPR until emergency services arrived and first responders took over.


The child was transported to Memorial Hospital in Miramar in critical condition. She was later taken to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, where she passed away a few days later on Thursday.

The Pembroke Pines Police Department used the media release to stress the importance of water safety to the public. Police have labeled the death as a drowning.

The Georgia family was on vacation at a rental home on Coco Plum Drive in Marathon.


On Monday, it was first reported that the girl was in critical condition in hospital by Local 10 news. However, on Thursday, May 13, the news outlet reported the young girl had died.

A similar accidental drowning happened in the Florida Keys at the beginning of April this year. A two-year-old girl was airlifted to a hospital in Miami after she drowned in a pool in the Florida Keys.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department investigated the incident. The child was found unresponsive in a pool at around 11 am, where her family was on vacation.

The Georgia family was on vacation at a rental home on Coco Plum Drive in Marathon. The adults of the family had lost sight of the child and then found her unresponsive in the pool.

They immediately started CPR until emergency services arrived. The girl was first taken to Fisherman’s Hospital, and she was then transported by helicopter to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami.

Neither childs' identity was released to the public by police. In both cases, the children wandered off from their parents and were later found unresponsive in a pool.
