MIDLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM/AP) -
A 4-year-old Midland County girl is dead after she was found lying face down in a pool in Jerome Township on Thursday.
The incident happened just before 6 p.m.
The sheriff's department said Autumn May Trudell was being watched by a 16-year-old sibling while their mother was at work. The sibling began searching for the 4-year-old after she couldn't be found in the home. Another person discovered the girl face down in the pool.
Once the girl was located, her caregivers immediately called 911 and began to administer CPR on the child.
The girl was transported to a local hospital once emergency crews arrived on the scene. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
An autopsy is planned for later this week. The incident remains under investigation.
