VAN BUREN — Authorities say a 5-year-old Fayetteville girl drowned in a swimming pool in western Arkansas.

The Southwest Times Record reported that the girl drowned in a pool in Van Buren on Wednesday.

Crawford County Sheriff Ron Brown says the girl was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead after her 17-year-old brother and his 16-year-old girlfriend found her lifeless in a pool and called 911.

Brown says the teens were watching the 5-year-old at the girlfriend's grandmother's house in the Oak Grove community of Van Buren when they noticed her missing.

Brown says authorities are investigating the death as an accident.
