A 2-year-old girl died on Christmas Day after drowning in a pool in the backyard of a Glendora home, police said.

Police were called Wednesday at about 4:45 p.m. about the drowning at a home in the 700 block of North Sunny Grove Lane. The first officer arrived about 90 seconds later, authorities said.

"When the officer arrived, family members were performing CPR on a 2-year-old child they had just pulled out of a pool in the rear yard," according to a news release from the Glendora Police Department.

The officer drove the child to a hospital in a police car while family members continued CPR.

Attempts to resuscitate the child were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead. The incident is currently considered accidental but an investigation is ongoing.
