GENERIC: pool water

Officials at a northern Michigan resort say a 14-year-old girl has drowned in a pool inside the property.

Boyne Mountain Resort officials said in a release Friday the teen was found unresponsive Thursday evening in three feet of water in the resort's Clock Tower Lodge pool. Attempts were made to resuscitate her by emergency workers at the pool and later at a hospital.

The release says she was in the pool area with her parents and sister. It wasn't known how long she had been underwater.

Boyne Mountain says its swimming pools are not staffed with lifeguards. The family was staying at an adjacent lodging facility.

Officials did not identify the girl.

Boyne Mountain is near Boyne Falls in Charlevoix County.
