— A 2-year-old girl died Thursday night after being pulled from a pond in Clayton.

Golfers at the Riverwood Golf Club community went to retrieve their ball at about 6 p.m. when they found the girl floating face-down in a pond along the golf course, authorities said.

The golfers attempted to revive the girl, who was taken to WakeMed, where she died.

Deputies said the girl had been at a home about 100 yards away from the pond, but they are unsure how she got there.

    So sad. This is the second two year old in as many days, right here. Little ones are curious, fast and sometimes almost fearless in their innocence of danger. Please, parents, be vigilant with your children. It can happen so quickly. Prayers for the family
