Gilbert girl dies after a homemade pool swing collapses

A seven-year-old girl from Gilbert has died from her injuries after a swing collapsed and pushed her into a pool.

12 News reports that the girl’s 14-year-old sister was using the family swing when it fell onto the 7-year-old and knocked her from the patio into the pool. She was pulled from the water, but a doctor at the house near Arrowhead Trail performed CPR and was unable to save her.

Paramedics from the Gilbert Fire and Rescue Department arrived and transported her to the hospital, but she died in route. Her older sister suffered serious injuries and is being treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
