A 19-month-old girl from Harrison Mich. died on Wednesday night after she was found in a canal behind a home in Harrison Township.

Macomb County Sheriff Deputies were alerted to the 38000 block of Mallast in Harrison Township around 7:15 to a report of a 19-month-old not able to breathe.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found Chloe Lawson not breathing. CPR was administered and she was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Deputies spoke with witnesses at the scene, including the girl’s parents and learned that the family was barbecuing when they noticed the girl was not in the house with the other small children.

They started to look for her and found her in the canal directly behind the family home.

When she was pulled out from the canal, she was not breathing and 911 was called.

The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this incident.
