REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) - A 3-year-old girl drowned in a backyard pool in Redford Township.

Authorities were called to the home Sunday evening in the 15000 block of Seminole. Relatives found the girl unresponsive in the water.

Officers and family members attempted to revive the child with CPR. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The victim's grandfather tells FOX 2's Randy Wimbley the victim just celebrated her third birthday.

It's unclear if anyone responsible for watching the girl will face charges.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
