FARR WEST, Utah, Nov. 17, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A 10-year-old girl has died after being pulled unconscious and not breathing from a swimming pool in Farr West early Saturday night.

Weber Fire District Battalion Chief Mark Lund told Gephardt Daily that family members who were with the girl at the indoor pool, near 2000 West and 2700 North, pulled her out and immediately began CPR while someone called 911.

Weber Fire crews arrived and took over life-saving measures. They transported the young girl to Pleasant View, where the nearest emergency room is available. Her condition was considered extremely serious and unstable.

She subsequently passed away, Weber County Sheriff’s Office officials confirmed.

No further information was available Sunday morning about what may have preceded the incident. Weber County Sheriff’s officials said more information is likely to be released later Sunday.

Gephardt Daily will update this developing story as more information becomes available.
