A 6-year-old girl was pronounced dead after drowning at the pool of the Nantucket Inn & Suites.

Police are investigating the death of a 6-year-old girl who drowned in a pool at a Wildwood, NJ motel.

The child, CBS3 reports, was staying with her family at the Nantucket Inn & Suites, on the 4100 block of Ocean Avenue.

At around 4:30 pm, the child was found in the deep end of the pool, where it's believed she was submerged for several minutes.

Motel tenants found her, called 911, and removed her from the pool to perform CPR before she was rushed to Cape Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead Saturday evening.

Reports say the child and her family are from Philadelphia. 

The Wildwood Police Department Detective Division is still investigating the incident but currently maintain that no suspicious circumstances were at play leading to her death.
