BEAUMONT (October 10, 2013)--A man and a young girl died after they were found unresponsive Thursday morning in a city pool in Beaumont that closed weeks ago.
Their names weren’t immediately released.
A municipal worker in Beaumont found the man and the girl Thursday morning when he went to check the pool.
They were both in a wading pool with about a foot and a half of water.
The girl who was about 5 years old, was found beneath the man.
They were taken to a Beaumont hospital where they died.
It wasn't immediately clear why they were at the pool, which closed before Labor Day, or the circumstances of their death.
Autopsies were ordered.
