ALSIP, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a 9-year-old suburban Detroit girl drowned in a hotel swimming pool while attending a cheerleading competition in the Chicago suburbs.

The Cook County medical examiner identified the girl who died Saturday evening as Adriana Douglas of Highland Park, Michigan. Police say authorities responded to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Alsip on reports of an unresponsive person. The girl was taken to a nearby hospital where she died.

The medical examiner’s office says the cause and manner of the girl’s death were to be released later. Police say they are investigating but don’t suspect foul play.
