Girl, 3, drowns in small lake at Memphis apartment complex

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a 3-year-old girl fell in a small lake at a Memphis apartment complex and has died from her injuries.

Fire Department spokesman Lt. Keith Staples said the 3-year-old and a 2-year-old girl were playing on Sunday near the 3-acre lake at the Somerset Park Apartments near the airport and fell in.

Staples said paramedics tried to revive both girls before they were taken to LeBonheur Children's Medical Center, where the 3-year-old later died. The other girl is still being treated.

Staples said authorities are still investigating the incident.
