FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — A 13-year-old Fredericksburg girl was pronounced dead Monday, two days after she was pulled from an apartment complex pool.

When the officers arrived at the scene, they located a lifeguard performing CPR on a young teenager,” a Fredericksburg Police spokesperson said. “One of the officers began assisting the lifeguard with chest compressions. EMS arrived shortly after and transported the victim to a nearby hospital.”
The girl was eventually flown to a Richmond hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The drowning was reported at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
