A 2-year-old Beaufort girl has drowned in a family member’s swimming pool, officials say.

Karalynn Forbes was found in the pool after visiting the home on Saturday, April 11, said Beaufort County Chief Deputy Coroner David Ott.

EMS responded to the scene after a call from the home was made to 911 at 5:40 p.m., Ott said.

The toddler was pronounced dead at 7:10 p.m. at Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

An autopsy, performed Tuesday morning at the Medical University of South Carolina, found the cause of death was accidental due to drowning, Ott said.
