A seven-year old girl found at the bottom of a public swimming pool in Robstown Sunday was pronounced dead later that night.
The girl was visiting the Diaz Park Public Pool with her family. Her mother was watching her and taking care of a grandchild when she lost sight of the seven-year old.
The mother believes the young girl was following her older siblings to the deep end.
After losing sight of the little girl, the mother's boyfriend spotted her in the deep end of the pool and pulled her out of the water. Robstown EMS was called out to the scene. It is still unclear how long the little girl was underwater, but EMS crews said there was quite a bit of water in her lungs.
Police did make contact with pool personnel, who said lifeguards were on duty at the time of the drowning.
