10-year-old Fort Worth girl dies after being pulled from apartment pool

A 10-year-old girl pulled from a Fort Worth apartment pool by police officers has died, officials said.

Officers were working another call nearby when, at about 7:30 p.m., they heard screaming in the pool area in an apartment complex at 5901 S. Calloway Drive.

They found the girl unresponsive and performed CPR until medical personnel arrived, police said. She was taken to Cook’s Children in critical condition, the Star-Telegram reported Saturday night.

Officials at the time believed her condition was stabilizing; however, a police spokesman Sunday morning said the girl had died.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the girl as Jaqueline Juarez. She was pronounced dead at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
