Two-year-old dies after rescue from backyard pool


Authorities say a 2-year-old girl has died after she was pulled from a backyard pool at a central Indiana home.

Police say Jazzilyn Jenkins of Columbus was found in the 4-foot-deep pool at a home just northwest of Columbus where she was visiting relatives Tuesday evening. Relatives and medics performed CPR at the scene before she was taken to a Columbus hospital.

Jazzilyn was later transferred to an Indianapolis hospital, where officials say she died Thursday.

Bartholomew County sheriff's Maj. Todd Noblitt tells The Republic that investigators don't know long Jazzilyn was in the pool before she was found.
