A three-year-old girl is dead after falling into a swimming pool. Authorities say Emily Johnson of Science Hill in Pulaski County managed to open a door yesterday while her parents were sleeping. She then wandered next door to the neighbor's swimming pool.

The owner of the pool says the four-foot deep above ground pool is completely fenced in.
Still, authorities say the little girl must have climbed on an 18-inch high deck that allowed her to reach the water.

The girl was taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
