Woman slips, hits head and drowns in neighbor's pool

A woman drowned in a swimming pool on Pitt Street in downtown Charleston early Saturday morning.

The Charleston County Coroner's office identified the woman as Anna Elizabeth Watson, 31. She reportedly drowned in her next door neighbor's pool.

Police conducted an investigation of the death, but there is no evidence of foul play.

Watson lived next door to the home on Pitt Street and regularly swam in the pool. Her uncle says she was taking care of the neighbor's pets while the homeowners were on vacation.

He says she was chasing a dog that got loose, when she slipped, hit her head and drowned in the pool.
