A tragic incident unfolded in Khusgaon Deshmukhwada in Bhor Tehsil, as a two-and-a-half-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool at a local bungalow. The family, residing in the Bhor area, faced the unfortunate event while the toddler was playing near the neighbourhood swimming pool.

The neighbours heard screams and rushed to find the unresponsive girl in the water. Immediate efforts were made to rush her to a nearby hospital in Khed Shivapur, where she was, unfortunately, declared dead.

The police have registered an accidental death report.
