A toddler drowned in a small inflatable pool in Troutman Thursday.
The incident happened at a home on Sorrel Lane, off of Thoroughbred Drive, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.
The girl, who investigators say was between 18 and 19-months-old, was outside with family members, and was sitting in a chair near the pool.
The toddler's grandmother found her in the pool, which had about a foot of water in it, and started performing CPR.
Emergency crews were called and took the young girl to a nearby hospital, where she later died.
Deputies said the drowning appears to be accidental, but that the incident is still under investigation.
