WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say a 3-year-old girl drowned in a pool at her daycare provider’s home.

Police Sgt. Nikki Woodrow says the girl and a 5-year-old were playing in the backyard Thursday morning.

The 3-year-old somehow got into an above-ground pool that was about 4 feet high. She died at the scene.

Woodrow said the daycare provider and three other children were in the house when the girl drowned. She says it’s unclear how long the girl was in the pool and an investigation is continuing.
