Child dies after medical emergency causes her to fall in pool

Posted: Updated:

JESSAMINE COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A 7-year-old girl died after falling into a Jessamine County pool following a medical emergency.

Friday at the Nicholasville Aquatic Center, children and families looked on as the lifeguard rescued the girl from the pool, but was unable to revive her.

"When the ambulance left the siren was not going and I think that was a reality to all of us, that is just takes a second to look away," said Jennifer Haseloff, a witness. "Your kids that you love so much…everyday is a gift."

Officials hope to learn more about what happened from an autopsy.
