KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The owner of a popular water park in Kansas City says a young girl who was pulled from a pool last week has died.

A spokesman for Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., which owns Oceans of Fun water park, confirmed the girl’s death on Tuesday.

The company said in a statement that park staff and fire department responders cared for the girl after she was found in distress on July 5 at the park’s Coconut Cove pool.

The company didn’t say what caused the girl to begin struggling and it didn’t immediately reply to a request for further information, including the girl’s name.

Law enforcement officials said the girl was younger than 10 years old.
