With Summer right around the corner, the weather warming up, and kids being home more often authorities are reminding everyone to keep a close eye on the little ones especially when there’s a body of water around.

The reminder comes as a 2-year-old girl was found at the bottom of the pool at a home on Randolph street in Marrero. Jefferson Parish deputies say Natalie Gandy lost her life Saturday. Investigators there was a large family gathering underway when someone noticed the toddler at the bottom of the pool.

She was pronounced dead at West Jefferson Hospital.
