A 3-year-old girl has died from a drowning that occurred last night in North Las Vegas.
On July 4 at about 8 p.m., officers responded to the 1100 block of Spottswood Avenue regarding an unresponsive child who found in a swimming pool.
Medical personnel arrived and transported the 3-year-old child to UMC Pediatrics where she was listed in extremely critical condition.
