A Waxahachie child lost her life in an accident Sunday, with emergency personnel called out to Blue Lake Villas, 155 Lakeside Drive.

Fire Chief David Hudgins said paramedics - who were across the street at station No. 3 - were able to get to the scene in less than a minute.

“It’s my understanding she was at the pool,” Hudgins said. “My paramedics got there, scooped up the child, got her in the ambulance and transported her.”

The child was taken to Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie and later transported to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, where she was pronounced dead.

The name and age of the child were not available by press time. A message left with the police department was not returned by press time.
