Deaf child drowns in pool
A 4-year-old girl who was deaf drowned Sunday in a neighbor's pool in northwest Harris County marking the region's first child drowning of the new year, authorities said.
The child's mother called 911 around 9 a.m. after realizing the girl had been missing for a few minutes from the home in the 17400 block of Laguna Trail, said Harris County Sheriff's Office spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland.
While searching the neighborhood, the father spotted the girl floating in the next-door neighbor's backyard pool, Gilliland said.
