COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. – Police in the southeastern suburb of Twin Cites say a 3-year-old girl died Thursday afternoon after drowning in a swimming pool.

The Cottage Grove Department of Public Safety says it responded to a report of a girl found in a pool on the 8600 block of Johansen Avenue South around 2:45 p.m. Neighbors and family found the girl unresponsive.

Upon arrival, police officers performed life-saving attempts on the girl. She was transported to Regional Hospital, where she died.

The drowning is under investigation, but authorities say they do not suspect foul play.

Then last week, a 5-year-old Edina boy died drowning in an apartment pool earlier this month.

Data from the CDC shows a national increase in accidental drowning deaths since the pandemic began more than four years ago.

Drowning is the leading cause of death among children aged 1 to 4 years. For that age group, the CDC found that drowning deaths increased 28% in 2022 compared to 2019.
