As the snow fell Sunday, a 6-year-old girl in Richfield fell into an in-ground backyard pool that was uncovered and partially full, KSTP reports.
An 8-year-old cousin tried to help her, but he went in and also needed rescuing. Police officers and a neighbor pulled them from the icy water. The 6-year-old was unconscious and was in critical condition Sunday at Hennepin County Medical Center, the station reported. The 8-year-old was unhurt.
