— A 4-year-old girl has drowned after she fell into a swimming pool at a DeKalb County apartment complex.

Authorities say the girl was playing with a friend at the Southern Place complex in Clarkston, just east of Atlanta, when she fell into the pool. WSB-TV reports that the pool was only partially filled with water.

The girl’s name hasn’t been released, and few other details were immediately available Sunday.
