Clearwater police tell news outlets that the girl's family had been in an enclosed pool area at their home when they went inside to prepare dinner on Monday night. A rear sliding glass door was inadvertently left opened and the toddler apparently slipped outside and fell into the swimming pool.
Police say the girl's 7-year-old sister pulled her out of the pool. Family members started CPR and called 911. She was taken to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Tampa.
