YULEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 9-year-old northeast Florida girl is dead after an apparent drowning in her family’s swimming pool.

The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office reports that the girl’s father called the fire department for help shortly after noon on Labor Day.

Deputies say the father reported that his daughter possibly had a seizure while swimming in the pool and stopped breathing.

The girl was later pronounced dead at Baptists Medical Center in Nassau.
