Unfortunately, the three-year-old child rushed earlier this afternoon to St. Martin Hospital, after being discovered face down in an above-ground swimming pool in Breaux Bridge, was pronounced dead at the hospital.
At approximately 2 p.m Friday, police responded to a residence in the 900 block of Cecile Blvd. in Breaux Bridge, only to find the child unresponsive. Police said CPR was administered, but with no success. The child was transported by ambulance to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Witnesses Friday afternoon reported seeing an ambulance being escorted by two police cars traveling at a high rate of speed.
The apparent accidental drowning is being investigated.
