PHOENIX, AZ – A 2-year-old girl lost her life Thursday night after being found in a backyard pool.

Police identified her on Friday as Karishman Shephard.

Phoenix Fire Department spokesman Chris Ketterer said crews got the call around 6:30 p.m.

When firefighters arrived to the home near 75th Avenue and Thomas Road, they found Shephard unresponsive.

Shephard was transported to the hospital where she later died.

Crews told ABC15 the girl’s grandmother was watching her at the time.

Ketterer said the home does not have a pool fence.
