KATY, Texas - When Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a CPR call on the 4900 block of Windcross Court in Katy, investigators say two 2-year-old girls were left unsupervised for what appears to be a short amount of time.
Deputies say the moms had just went inside to grab towels when one of those 2-year-old girls got inside the pool and nearly drowned.
Apparently the other 2-year-old went inside to alert the parents what happened and one of the adults then retrieved the girl from the pool and started performing CPR.
A neighbor then came over to help continue CPR while 911 was dialed, then deputies took over until EMS arrived on scene. The girl passed away.
Sheriff’s deputies are now reminding people of the importance of pool safety.
