CARROLLTON, Ky. - A Carroll County mother had her worst fears realized Sunday afternoon when her 1-year-old child drowned in a family pool.
Kentucky State Police say the child, Avaleen Price, wandered outside her family's home in Carrollton after her mother laid her down for a nap and fell in a swimming pool on the property.
Investigators say the toddler was found unresponsive in the pool after an undetermined amount of time. She was transported to Carroll County Memorial Hospital where she later died.
The girl's mother told law enforcement officials that she went to sit on the front porch at her home after putting her daughter down for a nap.
The media release does not indicate whether or not there is a fence or other safety measures around the pool.
Foul play is not suspected, according to the press release.
The investigation is ongoing.
