SAN DIEGO (AP) — A 1-year-old is dead and her 2-year-old brother is in intensive care after their mother found them unconscious in a backyard pool in San Diego County.
Sheriff's investigators said in a statement that the woman woke up Monday at the home in La Mesa where she'd been staying with a friend and found the kids in the pool.
She and her friend drove the children to a fire station and paramedics took them to a hospital where the 1-year-old was declared dead.
Sheriff's officials say the mother first falsely told them she found the kids in a different pool before changing her story.
Investigators who searched the home with the pool say they found a marijuana-growing operation in the basement and are looking for the woman's friend who lives there.
