Girl Dies of Apparent Drowning During July 4th Party

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 6-year-old girl has died after apparently drowning in a swimming pool during a Fourth of July party in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police officer Lt. Jeff Goodwin says the girl was found unresponsive at the bottom of the pool at the home on the 2500 block of Monte Carlo Drive in the northwest valley on Monday evening. He says she was taken to Mountain View Hospital, where she later died.

It wasn’t clear Monday night how the girl ended up in the pool or how long she was under water. It also wasn’t clear if anyone at the party will face charges.

Detectives are investigating the incident.
