OAKVILLE - Police say a grandmother has died and her four-year-old granddaughter is in hospital after they were found face down in a backyard pool in Oakville.
Halton regional police say someone called to report that the woman and girl were found unresponsive in the in-ground pool at about noon on Wednesday.
They say the girl's mother pulled her out of the pool and a neighbour pulled the grandmother out.
Police say that when officers arrived, they performed CPR on the 79-year-old woman but she could not be revived.
They say the girl regained consciousness before police arrived and she was airlifted to a children's hospital in Hamilton, where she was in critical condition early Wednesday evening.
Police say they do not believe the incident was suspicious.
