21-Month-Old Drowns In Pond

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - A 21-month-old girl drowned after apparently wandering away from home and falling into a neighbor's pond.

The Cuyahoga County coroner's office identified the victim as Olivia Pimental.

Police were called to the scene Tuesday evening, according to Lt. Daniel Jaykel of the Elyria Police Department.

The child was pulled from the pond and taken by medical helicopter to Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland.

She arrived at the hospital about 6:30 p.m. and was pronounced dead at about 8:25 p.m., said hospital spokeswoman Janice Guhl.
