A three-year-old girl from rural Iowa City died Tuesday as a result of a drowning accident on Sharon Center Road SW. According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, Abby Miller was found underwater and unresponsive in a stock tank the family used as a pool. She had been playing with her siblings. Emergency personnel responded to the scene at approximately 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and took over efforts to resuscitate the girl from her mother. Members of Hills First Responders, Johnson County Ambulance Service and University of Iowa’s AirCare were able to stablize Miller enough to be transported by AirCare to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Miller passed away at the hospital Tuesday. The Johnson County Sheriff’s office is cooperating with the Johnson County Medical Examiner’s Office in an investigation of the death.
