SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — Pinal County Sheriff's officials say a 1-year-old girl has died after being pulled from a backyard swimming pool in San Tan Valley.

The Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday after a baby fell into a family pool.

The girl reportedly was at her grandmother's home at the time.

The woman jumped into the pool to pull the child out and performed CPR on her until deputies and emergency medical personnel arrived.

The girl was taken to a Mesa hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

The name of the child hasn't been released yet.
