A grandmother has died and her one-year-old granddaughter is
in hospital after they were both found unconscious in a
backyard pool on the NSW south coast.
The 63-year-old Korean national had gone for a walk with the
child strapped to her in a baby harness at an address in
Dapto, south of Wollongong at about 2.30pm yesterday, a
police spokesman told AAP.
Shortly after, the woman's grandson raised the alarm after
finding the pair unconscious in a pool in the backyard.
The girl was resuscitated and taken to Wollongong Hospital,
but the grandmother could not be revived, the spokesman said.
The woman was believed to suffer from a medical condition,
and police do not believe there are any suspicious
circumstances surrounding the incident.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
