Girl drowns in pool at Pacific Palisades home

A young girl pulled from a backyard pool in Pacific Palisades Sunday afternoon later died at a hospital, authorities said.

The girl, who was variously described as 5 and 7 years old, was visiting from out of town and had been out of sight for several minutes before she was discovered, fully clothed, in the pool at a residence in the 17700 block of Calle de Palermo, authorities said.

Three women, including a relative, performed CPR, but paramedics arrived to find the girl unresponsive. She was airlifted from a clearing at the nearby Santa Ynez Reservoir to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, where she died, Los Angeles County Coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said.

Fences around pool are a requirement, gates around pools,

otherwise the pool should be removed there are man dangers in a pool
The suction devices, the electrical bulbs can short out and kill everyone in the pool. Wake up people.
