Jonesboro toddler drowns in swimming pool

JONESBORO (AP) - Authorities say an 18-month-old girl has died after falling into her family's swimming pool.

Jonesboro police say the incident happened Tuesday night. Authorities say the mother was preparing dinner when she realized her daughter, Kinley Crews, was missing. The girl was found floating in the family's swimming pool.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that a downstairs door used to let family dogs in and out of the home may have been unsecured, allowed the girl to get to the backyard.
