TODDLER DROWNS WHILE VISITING FAMILY IN PERRY
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of a 4 year old Missouri girl who drowned Sunday while visiting family in Perry.
Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig says the incident was reported around 6:45 p.m. at a home on Main Street.
Herrig says a family member noticed the young girl was missing and then noticed the child's shoes sitting beside an above-ground pool outside of the home. The family member then found the girl unconscious in the water and immediately started performing CPR, according to Herrig.
Herrig says the child was from Monet, Missouri, and was in Perry to visit family for the 4th of July holiday. He said it was unclear how long the girl was in the water.
