Toddler drowns in Klamath Falls swimming pool

Klamath Falls, Ore. — A 3-year-old girl is dead following a tragic accident this weekend in Klamath Falls.

Emergency crews were called to a home on Butte Street in the Stewart-Lenox area Sunday afternoon at about 5:30.

The young girl apparently drowned in an above-ground pool.

“Parents were barbecuing, it appears that she was away from them only for a short period of time, and got into a pool and drowned,” said Klamath County District Attorney Rob Patridge.

The name of the young girl has not been released. A child fatality review is being conducted by Klamath Falls Police.
