PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) — A toddler found in a backyard swimming pool of a Tampa Bay area home last week has died.
Pinellas Park police say 2-year-old Elienna Depasquale died Sunday morning. She had been unconscious at a St. Petersburg hospital for almost two days.
The girl was not responsive when she was pulled from the pool at her home Friday afternoon. She was floating in the water when a family member founder. Investigators believe she got into the pool after crawling through an unlocked pet door.
This case remains under investigation, but no charges are expected.
