Tragedy strikes Cave Creek after a little girl drowns in a hot tub. Officer Courtney Palma with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says a two-year-old girl was found floating in the family hot tub by her grandmother. The grandmother pulled the child out of the tub and started CPR before Rural Metro Fire arrived to take over.
The little girl was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Palma says the little girl had been under water for several minutes before her grandmother found her. A word of caution for anyone with children – never leave a child unattended for even a minute when around water.
