3-year-old girl drowns in grease trap behind Alabama ice cream shop

Auburn, Ala. -- A 3-year-old girl drowned Saturday after falling into a grease trap behind an ice cream shop in Auburn, Alabama.

The girl was found unresponsive in the 6-foot deep trap on Saturday afternoon, according to The Plainsman in Auburn. When police arrived, an employee of the ice cream shop and a family member were performing CPR on the child.

Authorities later pronounced her dead.

Video surveillance shows the girl playing with her siblings and falling through a lid covering one of the ice cream shop's grease traps. The girl was missing for five to 10 minutes, according to The Plainsman.

The drowning was an accident, authorities said, according to the paper. The incident occurred at a Bruster's Real Ice Cream location.

The child was identified as Sadie Andrews.

"I'm just so thankful for the three years we had with her," Sadie's father Tracy Andrews told al.com. "She taught me about being happy and loving life and loving people. At 3 years old, there's no preconceived notions. To her, everybody was good. She didn't see the bad. She just loved people and it didn't matter what they did."

Sadie leaves behind her parents and five siblings ranging in age from 7 to nearly 2.

The girl was known for her friendly nature and was quick to introduce herself to new people, her mother Corrie Andrews said.

"It's really quiet around here with her today," Corrie said, according to al.com. "She was the life of the party."

Sadie was a fan of Elvis and liked to sing "Teddy Bear" and "Jailhouse Rock" with her dad, according to al.com. She also loved being outdoors, riding her bike, hiking and playing with her siblings.
