Four-Year-Old Drowns in Janesville Pool

Janesville police are still piecing together the details of what happened yesterday.

Emergency workers were called to a home on the city's west side around 5:40 last night for an accidental drowning.

Lydia Sears was in a neighbor's aboveground pool. The neighbors apparently weren't home at the time, but the pool was surrounded by a chain-link fence with locked gates.

Police say Lydia was taken to a Madison hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

They aren't sure how the little girl got into the pool.
