Sheriff: No charges expected in drowning of eastern Missouri 2-year-old


GRAY SUMMIT, Missouri — The sheriff of eastern Missouri's Franklin County says no charges are expected in the weekend death of a 2-year-old girl who drowned in the family's above-ground swimming pool.

Authorities say Alysa Hedrick was found unresponsive Sunday evening in the pool after wandering away from the front yard where she had been playing with a sibling.

Investigators say her father attempted to revive her until emergency responders arrived, but she later died at a hospital.

Sheriff Gary Toelke says there's no fence surrounding the pool, which has steps leading to the top of it but no gate.
