Toddler dies after falling into Dearborn pool

Dearborn police say a 2-year-old girl has died after falling into a neighbor's pool on Friday morning.

Police say the girl and her 3-year-old brother got out of the house while their parents slept. They then climbed the neighbors fence, and the girl climbed into the pool using the ladder.

The homeowner looked out her window, saw the child, and performed CPR until emergency crews arrived. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but died Saturday morning.

Police and child protective services are now investigating the circumstances surrounding this, including the supervision of the children.
