A 3-year-old Village of LeRoy girl has died after apparently falling into a residential swimming pool, and drowning.
Andrea Mangefrida of LeRoy was discovered unresponsive Saturday evening, in her grandparents' swimming pool in the Town of Alexander. Attempts to revive her were unsuccessful. Andrea was transported by ambulance to UMMC in Batavia, and later by Mercy Flight to Women's and Children's Hospital in Buffalo. She was pronounced dead early Sunday afternoon.
Genesee County Sheriff Gary Maha says the accident happened during a family part in the Town of Alexander.
"There were a lot of people around, they were having a Labor Day get-together," says Sheriff Maha. "There's nothing suspicious...this is just a very tragic accident."
Maha explained that the pool is an above-ground type. He said a deck built at poolside level leads out from the rear of the home, directly to the swimming pool.
The Sheriff's Department is reportedly continuing their investigation.
