West Virginia State Police on Monday were investigating the death of a 19-month-old girl who died after falling into a private pool in the Gerrardstown area Sunday evening.

State police were called in to investigate Monday. They would not release information about the child or the incident until the investigation was further along, a dispatcher for West Virginia State Police said.

The toddler fell into a swimming pool at about 7 p.m. Sunday. She was pronounced dead at Winchester (Va.) Medical Center at 7:42 p.m. Sunday, according to a hospital spokesman.

The Berkeley County Ambulance Authority South Station transported the child to Winchester.
