Toddler drowns in Baldwin County backyard pool

A child drowned in a backyard pool in east Baldwin County.

Baldwin County Sheriff Captain, Brad King, says the department responded to the incident around 5:24 p.m. Friday evening.

Isabella Giles was in the backyard of a house at 124 Brookins Circle in Milledgeville.

According to King, three other children were present as well as a grandfather.

King says only one child lived in the home on Brookins Circle. Giles and the other children were visiting.

Giles allegedly wandered into the pool. She was pronounced dead at Oconee Regional Hospital.

The child was 4 months shy of being 2 years-old.

King says the grandfather was doing a task in the yard when Giles drowned and says the incident seems like a "tragic accident".

King says the department does not anticipate any charges being filed against the adult.
