A three-year-old girl drowned in a residential swimming pool in Salt Rock is a small town just north of Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said on Tuesday.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said the girl drowned on Monday, at around 5.30pm. “Exact detail as to how the child landed in the pool is still speculative and will remain subject for investigation,” he said.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and found a member from specialised rescue and the mother doing CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) on the child.”

Botha said that paramedics took over with advanced life support resuscitation but the child died.
