CLAYTON, N.C. (AP) - A 2-year-old girl has died after she was pulled from a pond in North Carolina.

She was taken to a Raleigh hospital where she died.

Her name has not been released.

Deputies said the girl had been at a home about 100 yards from the pond. They don’t know how she ended up in the water.
