A 6-year-old girl drowned in a Wildwood Motel pool Saturday, according to Wildwood Police.
The drowning happened at the Nantucket Inn & Suites, at 4100 Ocean Avenue. The victim was not immediately identified.
Police and fire personnel found the girl unresponsive shortly after they arrived at 4:30 p.m. They said tenants at the motel had gotten the girl out of the water and were attempting CPR when they arrived.
Authorities said the child had inadvertently wandered into the deep end of the pool before being located several minutes later. It wasn’t immediately clear if a lifeguard was on duty.
The girl was taken by ambulance to Cape May Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
She was vacationing with other family members from Philadelphia, authorities said.
