An 18-month-old toddler has died after being found in a garden pond in Scotland.
The little girl was discovered unresponsive at a property shortly after 6pm on Thursday in Bainsford, Falkirk.
She was pulled from the water and raced to Forth Valley Royal Hospital under a police escort.
Despite the best efforts of medics, the toddler died shortly after arriving at the hospital.
A neighbour, who asked not to be named, said she was cutting the grass ‘and then all I heard was screaming’.
She told the Daily Record: ‘I could tell by the screaming there was something seriously wrong, it was horrible, I can still hear it in my head.
‘Minutes later I heard sirens, and then loads of police turned up along with an ambulance – they all went running round the back of the house.’
