CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Investigators say sleepwalking might have been at the root of a near drowning at Pathfinder Reservoir southwest of Casper.

The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office says a 26-year-old woman and a 4-year-old girl were found face down in the water Saturday.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/wPFYM4 ) a woman who called 911 told deputies she saw her daughter and the woman approach the water, turned away and then saw them moments later face down in the reservoir. She pulled her daughter from the water and another woman performed CPR on her.

Bystanders performed CPR on the woman, who started breathing again about five minutes later. She refused additional treatment, but the girl was treated at a hospital.

The woman who nearly drowned told deputies she was drinking during the day and had taken a sleeping pill before lying down.
