Police say a Citrus Heights, Calif., girl died Sunday afternoon after she was apparently electrocuted when a pool light malfunctioned, according to a report by Fox40 News.
The 9-year-old girl died at a local hospital after efforts to revive her by adults and a Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District crew failed.
Police say a light fixture in the pool was in the process of being repaired.
In another incident, an adult and a child were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries on Sunday after they suffered an electric shock in a Potomac, Md., pool, as reported by wjla.com.
Fire officials closed the facility for an extended period on Sunday because they said it was “unsafe to occupy or use.”
