FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old Fort Wayne girl drowned after she fell into a sump pump pit in her family's basement.
The Allen County coroner says Alexis Stark-Bork was pronounced dead at a hospital soon after she was found in the pit about 2 a.m. Saturday.
Police say Alexis was last seen watching television in the home's living room. About 20 minutes later, the girl's parents noticed she was missing and she was found face down in the pit.
An officer reported finding the pit's cover about 6 feet away underneath a futon.
