Tragically a young girl has died following a drowning accident in Joplin, Missouri. Furthermore, the 18-month girl died after she wandered away from her babysitter Monday afternoon. The girl was left alone for a moment, while the sitter was in another room, and the child fell into a hot tub that was floor level.
When the babysitter noticed the child was nowhere to be found, she began searching the house. Sadly, the toddler was found in the hot tub. When emergency responders arrived they were unable to save the young girl. The coroner has ruled the child’s death an accidental drowning. The babysitter that was in charge of watching the child was a friend of the girl’s parents.
