5-Year-Old Girl Found In Yorktown Pool Dies

YORKTOWN, N.Y. — A 5-year-old girl found unconscious in a swimming pool while attending a party in Yorktown on Friday afternoon died Sunday at Westchester Medical Center.

Adea Morina of the Bronx had been on life support in the pediatric unit since being transferred from Hudson Valley Hospital Center to the Valhalla facility Friday.

Morina was visiting relatives at a birthday party at 1240 Rustic Ridge and was in the pool area with nine other children and one adult when she apparently went unnoticed, Yorktown police said.

Yorktown police, Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps members and medics responded to the home about 12:35 p.m. Friday after Morina had been pulled from the pool. Police administered CPR at the scene.

No foul play appeared to be involved, police said, but the investigation was continuing with the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. An official cause of death has yet to be determined by the Westchester Medical Examiner's Office.
