In North Carolina, Camden County Deputies say a 12-year-old girl died while swimming in a backyard pool.

Deputies got a call on Sunday afternoon about the girl who had stopped breathing.

Medics couldn't revive her.

Investigators say the girl was swimming with family members in about four feet of water in an above-ground pool.

While the sheriff will not say if this is a drowning, he does say it's a "tragic accident."
