FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. - The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office responded to the drowning of a two and a half year old female on Friday morning.

The little girl was transported by ambulance to Scottsdale hospital. She later died at the hospital as a result of the drowning.

There was no fence around the pool. It appears as if the little girl got outside via an Arcadia door that let out into the yard.

MCSO does not know how long the child was out of the parents' sight.
