PCSO Working Child Drowning Call

On Tuesday, February 12th, 2013 at 1:34 p.m. the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call related
to a child drowning in the 34000 block of North Barzona Trail, San Tan Valley.
Deputies arrived at the residence in less than two minutes from the time they were dispatched.
The one-year-old female child had been at the residence with her grandmother. The backdoor to the residence
was left open and the child had exited the residence and went into the backyard. Once in the backyard, the
child fell into the family pool.

The grandmother had come out of the residence a short time later and discovered her granddaughter still in the
pool. The grandmother jumped into the pool and pulled the child out. The grandmother performed CPR on
the child until deputies and emergency medical personnel arrived and took over lifesaving treatment.
The child was transported to a local hospital and then transported by air ambulance to Cardon Children’s
Hospital in Mesa.

The child was pronounced deceased a short while ago.
