      4-year-old Midland County girl drowns in pool

      Authorities say a 4-year-old girl has died after being found in a pool at her family's home in Midland County.

      JEROME TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 4-year-old girl has died after being found in a pool at her family's home in Midland County.

      The sheriff's department says it responded Thursday evening following a report of a possible drowning in Jerome Township, about 100 miles northwest of Detroit.

      The department says the girl was being watched by a 16-year-old sibling while their mother was at work. The sibling began searching for the 4-year-old after she couldn't be found in the home. Another person discovered the girl face down in the pool.

      The girl was pronounced dead at a hospital.

      The department says Friday an autopsy is planned. The girl's name wasn't immediately released and the death is under investigation.
