LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — The Lawrence County Coroner says a two-year-old girl is dead after a drowning in Moulton Thursday.
Lawrence County Coroner Scott Norwood told News 19 that the girl was pronounced dead at Lawrence Medical Center at 4:29 p.m.

According to a spokesperson with the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a report of a child falling in a pond at an address off Highway 157 at about 3:45 p.m.
The spokesperson said deputies on the scene started CPR and then transported the child to the Lawrence Medical Center themselves, so they could get the child there quicker.
