NEWPORT, N.H. — Police say a toddler who fell into her family’s swimming pool in Newport has died.

Authorities say 19-month-old Macie Emery died at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Monday afternoon.

The girl’s mother had found her unresponsive in the pool Sunday. It’s believed she had been in the water for several minutes. Emergency crews were able to revive Emery at the scene and she was taken to the hospital.

Police tell WMUR-TV the pool’s safety fencing and gates were unsecured right before Emery was found.
