Second Sibling in Pool Tragedy Also Dies

A 2 1/2-year-old girl died Monday, a victim of a Sunday pool accident in Rancho Cucamonga that also killed her 18-month-old brother.

Angelica Figueroa died at 6:44 a.m. Monday at Loma Linda University Medical Center, authorities said. Her brother, Eddie, died Sunday evening at San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland.

The children were found in an above-ground pool by their 11-year-old cousin.

The children's parents, Dimas Figueroa and Rosa Morales-Figueroa, had taken them from Los Angeles to a family gathering to see their grandparents, who were visiting from Mexico.
