COLFAX, WA- Deputies and emergency crews from the Colfax and Endicott Fire
Departments responded to the report of a possible drowning at a residence just outside of Endicott early Tuesday evening.
Preliminary reports indicate that the victim, a 2yoa female, had been outside playing with siblings when she went missing. After about 15 min she was discovered, unresponsive in an older unused concrete swimming pool that was not in use. The child was found in less than two feet of residual standing water.
Family members and emergency crews attempted life-saving measures at the scene and during transport to Whitman Community Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
The Whitman County Coroner will continue to review this incident and will determine
the exact cause and manner of death.
