2-year-old SC girl drowns in pool at family's home

GREER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl has died the morning after she was found in a pool at her family's South Carolina home.

The Greenville News reports that Asiah Love Salo died early Wednesday morning at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Greenville County sheriff's deputies went to the family's Greer home Tuesday afternoon after 2 of her brothers saw Asiah floating in the pool. The girl's mother was working in the yard at the time and pulled her daughter out of the pool.

Asiah was taken to the hospital, where she later died.

Deputy Coroner Karie Cain says the girl appears to have drowned. An autopsy was scheduled for later Wednesday.
