A two-year-old girl drowned on the northwest side late Wednesday night, police say.

A mother called 911 after finding her daughter floating in a pool in the family's backyard at Cortaro Farms and Magee. She gave her daughter CPR until paramedics arrived, who also administered CPR.

The little girl died at the hospital. Northwest Fire says the girl opened a door and got outside, and while there is a protective fence around the pool, they say part of it was removed for repairs just one day prior. 

This is the first child drowning in the Tucson metro in 2017.
