PHOENIX — A 2-year-old girl who was pulled from a pool in Glendale on Wednesday has died, authorities said Thursday.
The girl was found by her father in the backyard pool near Northern and 51st avenues, the Glendale Fire Department said in an email.

She was transported to a local hospital, where she later was pronounced dead.
