Harleton — A Harrison County 2-year old died Sunday afternoon in an apparent drowning.
At around 4:30 p.m., Harrison County 911 dispatchers received a call from an address on Private Road 4137, near Harleton, about a possible drowning.
When crews arrived, they found Lacy Besecke being given CPR inside of the residence.
According to the child’s grandmother, who lives at the residence, she was watching the children play in the pool from the back porch. The grandmother says the child was wearing a swim ring, and had apparently taken the swim ring off, and was found at the bottom of the pool by other children. It is not known how long the child was under the water.
The victim was taken to a Longview hospital where she was pronounced dead by the emergency room physician.
