SEVERNA PARK, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County Police have identified a 4-year-old girl who drowned along with her grandfather in a neighbor's backyard pool in Severna Park Thursday afternoon.

Officials said 51-year-old Lemuel Kane and his granddaughter, Aryannah Wooten, were pulled from the pool. Kane jumped in to try to save the girl.

County police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said neighborhood children were swimming when the girl, who couldn't swim, jumped into the deep end.

The grandfather went in after her, but began struggling. Frashure says the other children ran to the girl's great-grandmother, who found the two at the bottom of the pool and called 911.

Rescuers pulled them from the pool and rushed them to the hospital, where officials say they were pronounced dead.
