Central Maine 2-Year-Old Dies in Saturday Pool Drowning
According to WGME 13, a two-year-old has died following an incident in Auburn, Maine on Saturday.
The news station is reporting that emergency crews were called to a residence on Dillingham Hill Road after family members had found the child unresponsive in the family's pool.
WGME says that police were on the scene first and immediately began life-saving measures on the child. Shortly after that, area paramedics arrived to take over those efforts.
Emergency crews worked on the child as they were in transit to Central Maine Medical Center. Sadly, those efforts proved unsuccessful and the child was pronounced dead.
Though preliminary findings show this was likely an accidental drowning, the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit in conjunction with the Auburn, Maine Police Department are still investigating the circumstances of the drowning, WGME reported Saturday.
This is a developing story and we will continue to keep it updated as more information becomes available involving the results of the ongoing investigation by area authorities.
