CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida mother and her 5-year-old daughter have died after being found unresponsive in an apartment complex pool.

Local news outlets report that Coral Springs police say 31-year-old woman and a girl were discovered face down in the pool Sunday afternoon and were unresponsive when they were pulled out.

Both were taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Carla Kmiotek says they’re working to figure out how both of the victims ended up in the pool.

Kmiotek says it’s possible the mother and daughter were underwater for over an hour.

Officials have not released the victims’ identities.
