JOHNSON COUNTY, Iowa — The Johnson County Sheriff's Office says a three-year-old died Tuesday morning after falling into a family stock tank the day before.

A release from deputies says the family used the stock tank as a swimming pool.

First responders were called to the 4800 block of Sharon Center Road SW, between Kalona and Iowa City, for a possible drowning around 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Emergency personnel were able to stabilize the young girl's condition and AirCare took her to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Authorities say the three-year-old died at the hospital Tuesday morning.

The Johnson County Medical Examiner's Office will be investigating the child's death.
