Police say a 17-year-old girl drowned at a pool party at a home in Phoenix. 

She has been identified as Angeline Davis, officials from the Phoenix Fire Department said.  

Davis and her 13-year-old brother were attending a party in the area of 5500 N. 41st Dr. on Saturday when authorities were called at about 10:30 p.m.

Holmes says a partygoer felt the girl's body at the bottom of the pool and she was pulled from the deep end.

"Fairly rapidly into the incident, Phoenix police were at the scene and conducted CPR and the fire department was here under three minutes to continue that process," said Phoenix Fire Department Capt. Jonathan Jacobs.

The girl's brother told investigators he last saw her in the pool's shallow end. He said he didn't know if his sister knew how to swim.

The boy said 15 minutes passed before the other partygoer discovered the girl.

Davis was not breathing and did not have a heart rate, Jacobs said.

There were about 25 people at the home.

"At one time in the pool, there was up to 15 young people, mostly 15 to 18 years of age, that were all in the pool," Jacobs said.

Jacobs said barriers were all in the right place but the water was a little murky at the bottom.

"There were no signs of alcohol use," Jacobs said. He added there were some adults in the area.
