A 3-year-old girl died Wednesday evening after falling in a pool earlier this week in the Sardis area, according to authorities.
“We are sad to report that 3-year-old Kenlee Ward, of Dayton, Ohio, passed away this evening at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta at Egleston,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Stephen Wilbanks wrote in an email.
Wilbanks said Ward and her family were renting a vacation home in the Sardis area.
The girl “wandered into the backyard of the residence and fell into the pool,” Wilbanks said.
“She was discovered by family members, who performed CPR until the arrival of EMS personnel,” Wilbanks previously told The Times.
The girl was taken by ambulance to Northeast Georgia Medical Center before a helicopter transport to the Atlanta hospital.
The incident happened before 3 p.m. Monday in the Marina Bay subdivision of Sardis.
No further details were available.
